PLANT BASE - CORN LEATHER FABRIC
Corn leather has been a staple of Alexander K's collection for several seasons now. We value it for its durability, quality and appearance. Made of 75% corn pulp, it is a remarkable achievement in the field of sustainable fashion.
Most of our materials are produced in Italy by a company with a long tradition of quality. The manufacturer has numerous certificates, including ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001, which confirm its commitment to sustainable development and safety.
We are proud to use corn leather in our handbags, jackets and footwear and believe it is a powerful example of how fashion can be both stylish and sustainable.
