Improved biodegradability

Zeology was developed as a sustainable alternative to existing tanning agents. It is chrome-free, heavy metal-free and aldehyde-free. Therefore, it offers significant environmental benefits: less pollution, less discharge of chemicals in waste and waste water, no use of chromium or glutardialdehyde (GDA), and improved biodegradability of tanned material. Using Zeology-tanned leather for upholstery offers a sustainable option, without compromising on leather performance.

The new standard for upholstery leather

What makes Zeology unique, compared to both traditional tanning agents and other existing sustainable alternatives, is that it delivers both sustainability benefits and superior leather performance. Zeology-tanned leather, Zeo White, is unsurpassed in characteristics such as grain tightness, physical leather properties, lightfastness and heat-resistance. Therefore, it is extremely suitable for upholstery use, which puts high demands on leather in terms of aesthetics and performance.

Now you see why Zeology-tanned leather (Zeo White) is the new standard in sustainable leather for upholstery.
