Peelsphere

Peelsphere™ is a truly circular material made from fruit waste and algae through advanced material engineering. It is created by redefining fruit waste in order to reduce our carbon footprint and designing for circularity.

As an ideal alternative to leather and synthetic leather, Peelsphere™ is beautiful, durable, versatile, and biodegradable. Born at the intersectionality of design, material science, and sustainability, Peelsphere's mission is to inspire a sustainable, healthy and balanced lifestyle through its quality and beauty.

The aim of Peelsphere is to provide a holistic material platform and sustainable solution to designers and brands. In order to approach their customers ton consider sustainability alternatives and to set a trend of transforming the traditional pollutive conventional textile industry, into an innovative sustainable bio-material industry. With UN Sustainable Development Goals 12 and 13 as a guideline, the material tries to encourage people to conserve the environment and to act more responsibly towards resource use and to promote climate protection.
