UK-headquartered engineered leather manufacturer, Eleather has launched a new metallic material collection for a wide range of markets spanning applications from transport to lifestyle.

Consisting of ten colours, the metallic collection embraces burnished blends that carry soft and warm tones throughout, creating a subtle, luxurious sheen. It is available via ELeather’s Design for Good portal and aims to provide more versatility for designers wishing to use sustainable alternatives to traditional leather, synthetic leathers or even fabrics.

“We’ve been working extremely hard in the last few years to demonstrate to the design community that our sustainable leather alternative unlocks a whole new world of creative possibilities for them,” said Nicola Fox, ELeather’s Head of Design. “Through the use of our trend collections, grain collection and now the metallic collection, the options for ELeather materials in terms of texture, colour, and finish are endless”

ELeather materials are made from leather offcuts collected from tanneries that would otherwise be sent to landfill. The company has developed a unique, patented manufacturing process that results in materials that are more durable yet equally as luxurious as traditional leather at a fraction of the environmental cost.

At designers can browse through the company’s catalogue of textures and access rendering files to visualise the use of the materials in their own projects.
