A regenerative and circular way of producing leather.


By transforming an abundant raw material with no commercial value, our business intends to offer a sustainable material alternative to the fashion industry through a regenerative and ecosystemic production model.

The plant-based ANGICO leather is made from the pods of the angico tree and has a particular natural shine obtained during the production process without the addition of toxic inputs. Through a circular manufacturing process, at its end of life, it can be used as raw material for the production of new ANGICO leathers or simply thrown away.

Native to South America, the angico tree is found in different biomes of Brazil and has been used in reforestation projects. Our objective is to generate economic value for reforestation initiatives in the country through the purchase of angico pods. More than offering a plant-based material, we want to offer a form of leather production that, instead of promoting deforestation, can generate economic value for reforestation projects.
