IIT Kanpur backed company Phool.co gets awarded for its bio-alternative to leather

Mar 21, 2021 12:55 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Phool.co, a company backed by IIT Kanpur has received the BIRAC Innovator Award for 2021 for its cruelty-free alternative to animal leather, called Fleather.

The bio-alternative to leather developed by Phool.co has been created with farm waste and temple flowers and performs almost like leather.

Made in a sustainable manner, the process cuts down many traditional tanning processes and also helps increase job opportunities for women in marginalized sections, according to the company.
