About the Company

Based in Valencia, Spain, Persiskin was founded in 2020 with the aim of using persimmon waste from regional production to develop next-gen leather that can serve as an alternative to traditional leather and synthetic leather.

Material

According to the AITEX Certificate (Textile Industry Research Association of Spain), Persiskin is a fabric of more than 85% natural origin, free from harmful chemicals or animal components.

Technology

Persiskin is located in Europe's largest persimmon producing region. Its production is made from the waste of the local harvest of persimmon, thus taking advantage of 100% of the fruit. The company aims to create a closed-loop production process.
