After six years of research and development fashion brand VEERAH has launched a vegan-friendly shoe line – made from apple peel.

The company told PBN that the apple peel skin, a bio-based vegan leather material, comes from organic apples.

The first

According to VEERAH, it is the world’s first brand to create a shoe collection using apple peels. 

A spokesperson said: “Inspired by a passionate group of environmental scientists we saw in Paris for the UN Climate Change Conference, this revolutionary new material was produced from apples grown in the Italian Alps after more than six years of industrious research and experimentation. 

“Responsibly sourced and luxuriously crafted, each eco-friendly style is purposefully designed at every stage and comes with removable and interchangeable accessories to multiply your looks while minimizing your fashion footprint. 

“Our founding philosophy is ‘Do Good. Look Incredible’.”

Durable and hypoallergenic

The spokesperson added: “The apples are hand-picked in Bolzano, one of the world’s largest apple producing valleys in the heart of the Italian Alps. 

 “The natural pores contained within the apple peels make the apple leather highly breathable and naturally UV resistant.

“The skin has comparable or even superior durability compared to genuine and synthetic leather.

“It is also hypoallergenic, and dermatologically tested and approved by the University of Ferrara in Italy.”
