Sustainable Boxing Gloves Out Of Grapes


Leftovers from the wine industry from stalk to stem are being used to make leather. As we wrote on many occasions before we know that can be made from a lot of different materials, such as cactus, pineapple, and mushroom. However, for the renowned fitness-wear brand Sanabul, grapes were the better option: and it’s using the residues of the fruit to make the world’s first leather boxing gloves made of grapes. 

Sanabul uses synthetic leather over animal leather not only for its small carbon footprint but because it says it performs and feels better. 

Sanabul named its newly launched grape leather L’uva Boxing Gloves, materials are created using leftovers from the wine and agriculture industries. They were fabricated in Italy, with stretches of local vineyards. 

The gloves represent the next evolution of sustainable materials in the world of combat sports and they are available at Sanabul’s website for only USD 275 a pair.

The material is also referred to as wine leather, and what makes it different is that it is 100 percent recyclable. The seeds and stalks can be used to form the fabric too.

Pangaia is another brand that uses leftovers from the Italian wine industry to make grape leather clothing items. 

The method ‘extends the utility of grapes’ and makes the process of winemaking more circular, the company claims. 

Additionally, Mercer Amsterdam followed suit last year by using grape leather to create sneakers – and says the material is ‘just as luxurious as real leather’.
