About the Company

The Parisian company Faircraft was founded in 2021 to create lab-grown leather. Faircraft has taken the best of cellular culture, material science and tissue engineering techniques, and come up with a cell-based alternative to traditional leather. Faircraft states that their material meets industry requirements, produces far fewer CO2 emissions, and has great mechanical performance and customization capabilities.

Material

Leather from cultivated animal cells.

Technology

A sample of animal cells are placed in a cultivator with the nutrients necessary for growth and division. The natural growth process occurs more efficiently in the cultivator. Based on an internal evaluation, FairCraft Leather’s carbon footprint is 1/10th that of traditional bovine leather.
