Nike Flyleather uses recycled leather fibers otherwise discarded in the leather manufacturing process to create a material that’s more abrasion resistant than full grain leather and is 40% more lightweight than full grain leather.
Another crucial factor lay in the desire to reduce the carbon footprint associated with leather, which not only uses a lot of energy and chemicals, but also results in a great deal of leftover scrap material. The mission became not only to invent a modern engineered leather, but also to reinvent the material production process to reduce waste and lower carbon impact.
