love beer

hate waste?


so do we.

That's why we are creating the world's first collection of accessories made from beer brewing by-products.

material innovation

Beer Leather

Beer Leather was developed in-house and it is a waste-derived, biobased, leather-like material. The material is made using a by-product from industrial beer brewing process called sediment or trub. Our beer leather is not only a (vegan) alternative to synthetic and animal-origin leathers, but it is also a solution for a zero-waste beer production.

We produce the material at our own pilot production facility in Denmark.


Trub is a sediment that forms during the fermentation process of beer brewing, and it consists mainly of water-insoluble tannin, protein conglomerates, hop residue and spent yeast.


Currently, the most common disposal method of trub, for smaller and middle-sized breweries, is via the sewage system (F. Vriesekoop, C. Kerby).

Our Beer Leather is made using a handful of ingredients - up to 95% of trub, aqua, seaweed extract, plant-based plasticiser and minerals. That's it!

To increase the durability and strength of the final product, Beer Leather is treated with a water-resistant coating. Currently, the coating contains both bio-based and petrochemical ingredients. 

product development

To develop our first collection of products, we have stripped down their forms to the core, getting rid of the unnecessary, preserving the essentials and celebrating the products' minimal functionality.

We have the luxury of designing directly with our in-house developed material Beer Leather, and we enjoy being guided by its qualities in our design process, which we believe is an essential part of intelligent making.

Second collection 

With support from the Worth Project Partnership and the EU Commission, we have initiated the development of our second collection. Current approach to product development builds further on the material engineering by integrating natural fiber scaffolds to strategically reinforce the material, thereby enhancing its performance. The fiber integration not only facilitates better product quality but also creates beautiful surface textures, with the veins of fibers being visible in the Pale Ale version of the bags. The collection is still in development, and here is the progress!

attention to detail

We strive to produce locally, utilising local skills and culture, material resources, and infrastructure. This approach has led us to rethink the hardware that jewels our products.

Instead of reaching out to the far East, we designed it to be produced using widely available machinery. Our hardware is CNC cut out of recycled sheet aluminium at a metal workshop that is around the corner from our leather atelier in Ubrique, Spain.

in Ubrique, Spain

Our products are hand-crafted in Ubrique Spain, and whilst our design language embraces minimal functionality it’s deeply rooted in craft and materiality.

We have worked closely with the masters in the leather industry to develop and refine our products. Every element has been carefully considered in terms of its necessity and composition.

Ubrique is especially known for its luxury leather industry, and here the craft has been passed on for generations. To this day, the ateliers are often family-owned and run.

On-demand production

Phased products will be produced in on-demand batches, which is a fabrication model that avoids overproduction and waste, as well as inspires pre-planned and conscious consumption behavior.
