ByPell is the result of a research made by a Company which is partner of ours. ByPell is made for more than 50% of waste leather coming from the leather production , namely scraps of leather that , after trimming are usually thrown away. The waste leather, after being milled and ripped to fibres, are mixed to other fibres and textile armor by “hydro process” , which assemble all these components into a single material ready for the final manufacturing.
Bypell production system reduces the environmental impact for 80% compared to the traditional leather production, allowing to save water up to 90%, electricity for more than 30% and 70% less chemicals , achieving a Carbon Footprint rate lower than 5Kg CO2/M2.
