About apple vegan leather
ANGELA ROI VEGAN APPLE LEATHER CARE
Thank you for your purchase. Your Angela Roi plant-based leather good has been expertly crafted by artisans with innovative materials and abundant care.
Similarly to traditional leather goods, apple leather is susceptible to external elements that may lead to changes in the material over time. This plant-based alternative to real leather is derived from the byproduct of apple goods, which are then processed into durable fibers that retain both the feel and the look of leather.
More specifically, Angela Roi vegan apple leather relies on a process that directly transforms existing resources into new, raw materials. It all begins in South Tyrol, Italy, with the cultivation of apples destined for the food industry and used in the production of juices, jams, and other edible goods. Angela Roi utilizes apple parts such as peels and cores, an estimated 30,000 tons of “waste” that would otherwise be thermally destroyed or deposited in landfills.
Natural apple materials effectively replace substances of chemical origin in the production chain, lowering energy consumption and emissions with innovation and timeless style. With a carbon footprint of zero, every kilogram of recovered apple waste is able to save 5,82kg of CO2 emissions – the carbon footprint of polyurethane.
As Angela Roi vegan apple leather items are worn, natural changes may occur to the material, such as the acquisition of a softer texture and a natural sheen. Dictated by its general use, vegan apple leather goods will developa patina, revealing its own personal history throughout time.
To best maintain your vegan leather good and ensure its durability, we recommend you take the appropriate, following precautions with your item.
PRESERVING YOUR APPLE LEATHER ITEM
Place and keep your vegan apple leather item away direct exposure to elements such as heat, sunlight, water, humidity and aridity as contact may lead to alterations in its look. If your item is exposed to water, wipe its surface gently with a dry, soft cloth immediately and allow for it to dry naturally.
PROTECTING YOUR ITEM FROM COMMON
Be wary of any contact your vegan apple leather item may have with substances such as ink, makeup, fragrances, and certain textiles – these may leave permanent marks or discolor your plant-based leather. Refrain from inserting oversized, ill-suited items in your Angela Roi plant-based leather good, as this may distort the shape of your item.
STORING YOUR VEGAN LEATHER GOOD
Proper storage techniques are essential in retaining your item’s natural sheen and other characteristics. When not in use, store your item in its original Angela Roi duster bag, in a dry place located away from light.
