Vegan leather made of leaves of elephant ear-plant
Some GENESIS sneakers are made entirely or partially of vegan leather of the elephant ear plant. Vegan leather is a breathable material with leather- like properties from the use of elephant ear plants. Made of leaves, this innovative material is environmentally friendly. The plant does not compete with food or forage plants, but grows strongly and year round at forest edges and river banks. The leaf is simply collected, plants are not killed in this process. The leaves are collected in sustainable areas and forest afforestation farms and dried to be sown with organic cotton. The reforestation farms produce oxygen and ensure a balanced life cycle assessment. In addition, organic waste is composted and fed to the soil as a source of nutrients.
