For over ten years Hannes Parth has been developing materials from apple remains at “Frumat”. It took a lot of perseverance and conviction for Hannes not to give up. Currently, apple paper and the so-called Appleskin is offered to an ever growing circle of customers. The first website is currently being tinkered with. New materials are also being tinkered with.
Appleskin is also called apple leather. However, since the material does not come from animals, it may not be officially called apple leather. Frumat has patented its production process and grants licenses. Great importance is attached to sustainable and fair production processes. In 2018, Hannes Parth received the award in the category “Innovation and Technology” at the “Green Carpet Fashion Awards” at the Scala in Milan.
