Le Qara means leather in “quechua” (Inca’s native language). Le Qara is a biotech company born to give a solution to the problems in leather industry. Le Qara vegan bioleather is made from microorganisms using biotechnology, so it does not come from animal slaughter and is eco-friendly. It is also biodegradable and the residues generated in the process can be used as a liquid compost, making it a zero-waste process. The vegan bioleather of Le Qara can replicate any type of leather, even exotic; because it behaves as any animal skin and Le Qara can change the texture, thickness and flexibility as well.
