Tômtex 100% bio-based material is created from shell seafood waste and coffee ground, with the aim to work as a sustainable alternative instead of faux and animal leather. It’s 100% natural biodegradable, and free of plastic. This new-generation material offers designers creative freedom with fewer material constraints on size, thickness, and scaling. Tômtex is set to offer an excellent softness to the touch while delivering high performance and durability.
