For years, alternatives to materials that harm our ecosystem have been sought. Leather has a significant environmental impact, but the options to replace leather fall short of industry needs.

The mission of sustainability has long been at odds with industry. But, does it need to be? By bringing innovative ideas to an industry with a deep history, we can evolve together.

Uncaged is a biomaterials company combining the power of nature and technology to reimagine leather.

Reimagining leather
We once thought
animal leather
was the way.
WE ONCE THOUGHT
LEATHER
WAS THE WAY.
Now we are
reimagining it
with vision

After years of research, we have perfected a formula to create material networks that mimic leather  without sacrificing the characteristics that make it a respected material for the fashion, automotive and home goods industries.

Thanks to the power of nature and biotechnology, we can replicate the quality and durability of leather. Our patent-pending technology gives us the flexibility to develop a distinctive array of leather alternatives that support different uses and markets.

SCALABLE

Our process is scalable and our leathers take only hours to create, unlike the years it takes for traditional leather.

SUSTAINABLE

We eliminate the need to raise livestock, which is a top contributing factor to global warming, and use significantly less natural resources.

CUSTOMIZABLE

Our formulas can be fine-tuned to meet different price and durability requirements. The material can also be skived during leatherworking.

CONSISTENT

Our technology guarantees no flaws, marks, or unusable patches minimizing wasted materials whilst maximizing profit.

INTEGRATED

We provide an easy fit into already existing supply chains by working directly with brands and partnering with their current facilities.

TANNING-FREE

By blending dyes and pigments into our material during its production, no traditional tanning processes are needed. Meaning no toxic chemical pollutants.
