About the Company

Vicki von Holzhausen launched her company in 2015 to create sustainable accessories. Using her experience as an automotive designer, she continues to innovate in the animal-free leather space.

Material

Technik-Leather™ is a 100% animal-free performance fabric created from recycled fibers and plants.

Technology

A microfiber layer made from recycled plastic water bottles (PET) mimics the supple quality of leather. Its top plant-based surface is stain-resistant, water-resistant, and scratch-resistant for ultimate durability, and a proprietary additive allows Technik-Leather to biodegrade in a landfill.
