Gelatex is the first eco-friendly leather-like material that is 100% non-toxic, made of waste and is easily scalable. It is made from gelatin nanofibers by up-cycling meat industry waste, an abundant and under-valued resource. It is a unique material, different from any other, but closest to suede or leather.
Gelatex x Stella Soomlais
The relationship with Estonian most well-known fully circular leather bags and accessories brand Stella Soomlais was created on early days of Gelatex in 2016. Stella Soomlais designers and crafters have tested the material various times on different products and are continuously giving us a valuable feedback.
"What really caught my attention about Gelatex was its many positive sides such as sustainability, constant quality and that it comes in rolls."
Founder & designer at NO/AN
"What excites me the most about Gelatex is the scalability and even topography of the material, which in other words means smaller leftover percentage"
