Suppose you search online, you might see many different versions of defining Eco Leather. And some even conflict against each other. In our opinion, "eco" starts with "ecologically-friendly," that is to say it should be a positive existence to human beings and to the world around us.
Following this direction, then vegan leather or genuine leather that is ecologically-friendly at some or all aspects of raw materials source, manufacturing process, during use and after use, then it is fair to define it as Eco Leather. Therefore, not all vegan leather and not all genuine leather can be viewed as eco.
Our company's Eco Leather is a category of upholstery materials that are constituted by using all eco-friendly raw materials and by through eco-friendly manufacturing process.
The non-solvent R1 Premium and R2 level of RIM resin function as the coating layer. We also utilize the genuine leather off-cuts, which would end up in landfills if not being utilized, to form the base layer by a special technique. Through an eco-friendly process, the finished eco-leather was built in our plant.
