About the Company

Ohoskin is an Italy-based startup that produces next-gen bio-based leather made from oranges and cacti.

Material

Ohoskin is cacti and orange waste material combined with PVC/PU. The company is working to get it to 100% biobased.

Technology

Orange and cactus residues collected from the agricultural and cosmetic industries are sent to companies in the system design, agrotech, and chemical industries, to be transformed into a proprietary biopolymer. Afterward, the biopolymer is sent to Novarplast, in Lombardy, for the production of the next-gen material.

Applications

Fashion, home goods, and automotive.
