Uncommon Alchemy creates sustainable, innovative materials from renewable resources - like, you guessed it, seaweed.
We work our magic (okay, it's science, but aren't they kind of the same thing?) to make something beautiful: a seaweed based alternative to leather.
It's never been clearer that fashion needs to change its ways if we're going to have a sustainable future on planet earth. Animal leather has a big environmental cost, not to mention it's, well, made from animals. Meanwhile, most 'vegan leathers' are indeed, vegan, but they're also made from petrochemical plastics. They come from dwindling fossil fuel resources and won't biodegrade.
So what's the solution? Seaweed! This amazing material is renewable, regenerative and can be used to make a vegan leather alternative for use in fashion and accessories.
