Leather Substitute Uppeal™

Innovative Craftsmanship Meets Sustainable Practices

Our journey of sustainability and innovation begins in the landscapes of South Tyrol, Italy, where the raw materials for our plant-based leather substitute, Uppeal, are harvested. This journey continues in a state-of-the-art facility in Tuscany, where tradition meets modern technology.

Since 1978, our dedicated manufacturer has specialized in the production of high-quality artificial leather. Today, they leverage the latest technological advancements to transform these raw materials into Uppeal, a cutting-edge, eco-friendly leather alternative.

At Equinetree, our products do more than meet high standards of quality—they also foster positive social change. We are proud to support socially disadvantaged women in India by partnering with a local NGO to produce our handmade fabric bags.

Tailored Work Environment

Understanding the challenges these women face, we ensure that their work schedule accommodates their family responsibilities. The working day begins at 10 AM, allowing time for them to take their children to school, and ends at 5 PM so they can be there to pick them up. A lunch break in the middle of the day provides further balance between work and personal life.
