This material is made from natural leaves of the elephant ear plant (Alocasia macrorrhisa) cultivated and collected in sustainable areas next to reforestation farms in Três Rios, Rio de Janeiro state. The process uses only resins and organic polymers of plant origin, and the residues are later composted and used as nutrients for the soil. The factory's proximity to the reforestation farms eliminates the need for long-distance transportation, reducing its carbon footprint. The water used in the process is pH corrected and reused for irrigation of reforestation farms. beLeaf is a vegan fabric similar to leather for its softness, comfort and resistance, in addition to preserving the soil, the biome and wildlife.
