> Malai is a biocomposite material made from bacterial cellulose, grown on agricultural waste sourced from the coconut industry. The word ‘Malai’ refers directly to the creamy lesh of the coconut and it is the coconut water (a by-product from the harvesting of this lesh) that sustains the bacteria whilst they are producing the cellulose, which is then in turn collected and reined until it becomes the inished material: Malai.
> It is entirely made out of cellulose created by bacteria and banana plant fibers. All ingredients that go into Cocoeather production can biodegrade in the compost within 90 days. Cocoeather is completely vegan and because it is made from cellulose fibres it can be recycled into paper products.
> Its strength is comparable to vegetable tanned leather of similar thickness. Cocother is a quite porous material, it has a semi-soft temper, similar to vegetable tanned leather and it is water-resistant. It contains absolutely no artificial substances and it will not cause
any allergies, intolerances or illness.
> Dimensions 120 cm x 80 cm or 40 cm x 40 cm; colour: blue navy, light blue, dark red, light red; weight 450 gsm (blue navy, light blue) and 550 gsm (dark red, light red). Thickness goes from 1 to 1,5 mm
