The science
and innovation behind Flaura

Flaura leather is made from a combination of apple powder and inputs of renewable origin.

The development and manufacturing process was carried out in collaboration with the R&D team at Groupe CTT, a technology transfer center specializing in technical textiles and advanced materials.

Several tests have been carried out to certify, among other things, the leather’s resistance to stretching, abrasion, UV rays, cold and heat, as well as its water resistance.

In the light of the results, Flaura leather demonstrates equal or superior quality and durability to animal and vegan leathers.
