Leather For The Discerning Vegan

image
Students from Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam Netherlands collaborated on a project that would almost certainly have PETA's approval. They used the food waste from a large local market to make fruitleather. The product was used to make purses as well as swatches to show the different colors available depending on the fruits used. Leather you don't have to hide.

I think this stuff was first invented by Moog and Uugh in one of those caves in Europe back before the previous global warming cycle.

Oh, wait, that may not be true they used REAL LEATHER like MEN.

I have the feeling that there will be so many chemicals in it, to prevent it falling into mush, that you can't eat it. Charlie Chaplin could eat his real leather boots while trapped in a blizzard.

By the way, the trolls can't get at this. It has been Public Domain since 1953.

Did anyone else go to the link above and see the picture of the handbag they show at the top of the article? Yuck! IMO, you can tell it's made from garbage based purely on the appearance. :sick:

If it hasn't already been proposed, I'd like to suggest plastic leather or "pleather" for the material.

I wonder how stinky fruit leather is.
