Reupholster with Ground-up Shoe Soles

Let’s face it, that natty couch isn’t going to last another year. Looking for a green (abet non-vegan) upholstery option? With leather scraps normally tossed by the shoe industry, leather manufacturer Spinneybeck has created surfacing material Recycled. The 100 percent vegetable-tanned leather—a mix of ground-up shoe soles and a water-based binding agent—is both 100 percent recycled and 100 percent recyclable. Typically used for upholstery or wallcoverings, Recycled is available in natural or charcoal grey and can be applied both in the home or in large scale corporate projects. ::Spinneybeck via ::Interior Design
