A new sustainable material made of leather waste
Giving leather waste a second life
Founded in 2017, Recyc Leather is an innovative material produced through a smart recycling process which integrates leather scraps from different products such as garden gloves.
Consumers are ready for a change
New generations are much more socially and environmentally conscious consumers.
We design and manufacture both recycled leather and finished products. We offer a green alternative to genuine leather from both sustainable and economical perspectives.
The Recyc LeatherTM story began 10 years ago when founder Aron Yu, working with brands for bookbinding designs, kept looking for sustainable materials in his printer factory. He saw an opportunity: recycled leather was only used as a reinforcing material in shoe soles, furniture trim and the middle layer of belts. It was a product that had limited applications due to being brittle.
