Upcycling-Technologie Zero Waste Sustainable

We refine what remains of the leather. Sustainable. Valuable.

Every year, leather processing produces 1 billion m² of leather scraps worldwide that are simply disposed of. However, these natural leather scraps are far too valuable and NABORE® creates a new high-end product from them.

NABORE® was born from this idea and stands for "Natural Bonded Resources". 

Our company creates a solution with new values from a problem: a high-quality, sustainable surface material.

NABORE® Leather based is:

  • a zero-waste technology
  • a thermoplastic upcycling process 
  • is based on a specially developed binder
  • closes the sustainable leather cycle

NABORE®: The sustainable recycling and reprossing of leftover leather

From old burdens to new values

NABORE® Leather is a thermoplastic bonded surface material obtained by upcycling leather scraps. Through special processes, a sustainable extension to natural leather is created, usable for many applications in different sectors and industries.

Approx. 50% is generated in leather punching waste due to production. The resulting Nabore® Leather based serves as an extension to known surface materials.

Nabore Leather based consists of 70% leather scraps.

Nabore Vegan is based on the cuttings of renewable raw materials.

Developed for a sustainable future

Sustainability is not so much a fashion term, but a compelling need to rethink and question previous patterns of behavior and consumption. This applies to many areas of life.

Every year, the leather industry produces a enormous amount of leather waste that has hardly been recycled. Nabore® wants to change that. Using a special reprocessing method, we return leather scraps to the recycling cycle and create a high-quality surface material from it.
