Fashion products from leather scraps. A Venetian couple’s start-up

Evelino Leandro and Patrizia Fanton are the promoters of Repelle, which was born with the aim of countering excessive production and preventing leather scraps from being buried and burned, thus increasing disposal costs.

The company uses scraps and remnants of leather to create a leather composite material, which, after various tests, is used for the production of high fashion items and much more through a 100% ‘green’ process.

The owners have not only developed an international patent to transform leather scraps into an innovative material, but they also have the ambitious goal of extending the patent to non-European countries like China and the United States. This strategic move aims to redefine the global market, positioning Repelle as a global pioneer in sustainable fashion.
