Budapest-based contemporary label Nanushka, part of the Vanguards Group, has launched an exclusive alternative leather fabrication to its collections that are free of animal skin and the usage of animal byproducts.
Okobor, a Nanushka exclusive, is composed of 56% recycled polyester and 44% polyurethane and is manufactured utilizing a GRS-certified dry method that reduces water use by 80%.
The in-house designed sustainable vegan replacement leather will be utilized across Nanushka's ready-to-wear items beginning with the pre-autumn/winter 2022 collection.
Nanushka began utilizing alternative leather in 2015 as part of its dedication to animal welfare, and in 2021, it will utilize Regenerated Leather in its collections, which is manufactured partially from compression of undesired leather offcuts. The introduction of Okobor is part of the company's larger sustainability goal to guarantee that "beauty and elevation in design should not come at the price of the environment around us."
While Okobor is an upgrade over the completely virgin-based vegan leather Nanuskha has used in the past, the fashion company acknowledges that further innovation is required. It also stated that it is continuing to do material research and development in order to offer the finest quality leather replacements.
