The pleather is biodegradable and compostable. Its primary raw material is a kind of bacterial cellulose drawn from the water of mature coconuts.​

No animals were harmed in the making of this leather. Kerala’s coconuts are being used to make a textured, water-resistant pleather, used in bags, pouches, wallets and shoes.

Behind the innovative material is a company called Malai — Hindi for Cream, and also a term used for the soft milky flesh of a fresh coconut. Malai was launched in 2018 by Zuzana Gombosova, a material researcher and fashion designer from Slovakia, and CS Susmith, a product designer from Kerala. Susmith has since moved on and Gombosova heads the company with a new business partner from Kerala named Aqeel Sait.
