Pangea offers solutions for sustainable leather processing and products. Whether it’s replacing part of the leather finishing chemistry with biopolymers derived from renewable biomass waste grains or utilizing olive leaf extract for leather tanning.
Tanned leather using extract from olive leaves instead of using man-made non-renewable chemicals
Reduction of overall weight through low density processing – not through reduction of the substance or thickness of the leather
Closed loop process that replaces up to 25% of the synthetic chemicals within the retanning process by reusing the wet shavings and reducing waste from the tanneries
Replacing 20% of the finish system with renewable content from plant extracts
Moving away from fossil fuel-based materials by utilizing renewable chemicals from shells and casings of gallnuts, chestnuts, and tara

Leather enrichments help showcase the personality of a vehicle brand. Welding, quilting and perforation can all offer subtle – or dramatic – looks and dimension to the vehicle’s leather interior, while embracing other design details such as tone or contrast. Additionally, supporting our customer and supplier teams from concept through production helps to minimize cost and time - and maximize design impact.
From large repeating design elements to custom shapes and sizes, our ability to execute a broad range of perforation options is part of our DNA. Our design elements drive the unique aesthetics that help to differentiate each customer’s vehicle brand identity.
The embossed design of our 3D embossing process provides definition and depth to leather. It can be layered or combined with different technologies to achieve desired design aesthetics.
Antiquing leather is achieved by adding subtle color combinations to the leather finish layering process, resulting in a timeless look with a cloud-like feel.
Leather quilting offers a unique look and can be developed using multiple threads and colors to drive a more subtle or dramatic look to the leather.
