ELeather Group has launched its latest material collection – Ancestral Darks – characterised by Victorian era references reflected in antique hues and in stark contrast to its last Eco Brights collection.

Ancestral Darks consists of seven shades and five different grains to highlight the versatility of ELeather’s recycled leather for fashion, footwear and transport brands.

All ELeather materials are made by redirecting leather waste from landfill, giving it a new life as a high-performance, luxury material solution fit for any application – from footwear to leather goods, to aircraft, bus and train seats. As such, it enables consumers to experience the luxury of leather while recycling waste, as well as saving over 60% of CO2 and over 55% of water and land in production compared to traditional leather.

Since 2017, ELeather has been supplying Nike with its high performance Flyleather material for trainers.
