Ohoskin is the first luxury vegan leather created from the most representatives fruits of Sicily: oranges and cacti.
Ohoskin is the first made in Italy vegan leather made with oranges and cactuses.

We created it because we share the growing concern around the environmental impact of the tanning industry.

Besides, we cannot ignore the impact of intensive farming on global warming or the ethical problems posed by animals' slaughtering.

We believe people should not choose between enjoying their life and doing what is right for the planet.

Our goal is to help people embrace a more conscious and sustainable lifestyle without giving up on what they love.

Our journey began in 2019, after validating our project with Milan University’s Help, Novartiplast Italia’s partnership, and the funds provided by Lombardy’s regional government.

We believe people should not choose between enjoying their life and doing what is right for the planet.

Our goal is to help people embrace a more conscious and sustainable lifestyle without giving up on what they love.

Our journey began in 2019, after validating our project with Milan University’s Help, Novartiplast Italia’s partnership, and the funds provided by Lombardy’s regional government.

Thanks to the Smart Fashion and Design Grant issued by Lombardy’s administration, in fact, we developed our first Ohoskin sample for automotive and interior design purposes.

Meanwhile, we also worked for the industrial scale-up. We also sealed deals with production partners and suppliers. The same year, we patented it in Italy.

In 2020, we registered Ohoskin as an international patented project and continued the design and innovation process with Novartiplast Italia's help.

Today, we are ready to enter the market and answer all our clients' needs.

To create Ohoskin we use only byproducts of agricultural and cosmetic industries. We use what remains of the oranges after being squeezed and the remnants of cactus’ paddles after they’re processed to create cosmetics and edible products.

With this process, we transform a byproduct of an industry into raw material for another one, closing a zero-waste cycle.
It's like turning mundane metal into gold. We create the seed of a new luxury that, in its turn, generates exclusive leather.
In the process, we don't sacrifice animals, and we ignite a virtuous circular economy.
At Ohoskin, we believe that true beauty does not come from suffering.
We had a vision: to create cruelty-free high-quality leather. Today, we made this vision reality, as acknowledged by the Anti-vivisection league. It awarded Ohoskin with the Animal-Free Fashion label. We received the VVV+ score that certifies we score that certifies we use no animal component.

Ohoskin also complies with the EU's REACH laws and the USA's PROPOSITION 65 rules and is phthalates-free.
