Innovation in fashion is a must. Especially in terms of sustainable materials. This time I want to show you the Italian brand Womsh. They make shoes from apple skin.
Apple skin is made using the cores and skins discarded from the industrial food industry. Apples are puréed, spread on a solid sheet, and dehydrated until almost all of the moisture has been removed. This purée turns into a flexible, leathery sheet that is then combined with Polyurethane to create the vegan leather.
The material looks just like leather but it’s 100% cruelty-free and environmentally friendlier. It is soft, smooth, breathable, and water-repellent.
From the brand Womsh I got the ‘Vegan Wave White Rose’ shoes. These shoes are made from apple skin. The laces are made from recycled PET bottles, the insole is made from natural fabric and the soles are made from recyclable rubber. the shoes are made in Italy.
