WHAT WE DO
PIRARUCU FISH SKIN
From shoes to handbags, from garments to upholstery. It’s hard to believe the skin of this giant Amazonian fish can provide such soft and resilient material.
After years of investment and research, the skin that used to be discharged as waste (fish is widely used as food) is transformed in a luxurious organic product.
The complete practice of sustainable management is controlled by the Brazilian regulators (IBAMA), helping to sustain and develop communities that fish on regulated farms.
The skin of pirarucu fish is able to build a complete sustainable cycle in the industry, protecting the forests, wildlife and people who depend on them.
The colors, shapes, textures and patterns of materials originated from nature will always be timeless.
And through time, our products acquire the touch and unique beauty that only a biological product can possess.
A true vegan and 100% deforestation-free product, with characteristics similar to animal raw materials.
beLEAF™ is one of the most innovative and eco-friendly material ever created.
Through regenerative agriculture, leaves are collected in sustainable areas and planted together with reforestation farms - all neighboring Nova Kaeru company.
