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.
Our process is scalable and our leathers take only hours to create, unlike the years it takes for traditional leather.
We eliminate the need to raise livestock, which is a top contributing factor to global warming, and use significantly less natural resources.
Our formulas can be fine-tuned to meet different price and durability requirements. The material can also be skived during leatherworking.
Our technology guarantees no flaws, marks, or unusable patches minimizing wasted materials whilst maximizing profit.
We provide an easy fit into already existing supply chains by working directly with brands and partnering with their current facilities.
By blending dyes and pigments into our material during its production, no traditional tanning processes are needed. Meaning no toxic chemical pollutants.
