*MATERIAL GALLERY *

The Lányos Handmade Collection is 100% handmade by me from vegan, sustainable, up cycled and/or repurposed materials whenever possible.  I am constantly looking for sources of quality materials. Have you an old leather coat you don’t know what to do with? Or a box of fabric collecting dust? We also repurpose jeans, jean jackets, belts, neck ties and purses. Let me know! Perhaps we can do something with it!

I also have an extensive collection of materials, including hardware, cork vegan leather, Kraft-tex, fabric, repurposed leather and other repurposed materials and can always source materials to make that special item for you.

Cork – in stock

These are Cork vegan leathers suitable for certain projects. Check if “Cork vegan leathers” are recommended in the product description.

Our cork material is purchased from MM Cork Supply in Canada. MM Cork Supply imports their cork from a manufacturer in Portugal. What follows is information directly from the MM Cork Supply website:

“Cork is an ecofriendly alternative to leather that is natural, sustainable, vegan, and PETA certified. The cork bark is peeled from the tree by skilled labourmen without harming the tree. The same tree can be reharvested every 9 years for up to 300! Cork leather is as strong as it’s animal counterpart, water resistant and has naturally occurring antibacterial & antimildew properties.”

“The cork I carry has been treated to be stain resistant (Scotch Guard) and has had a UV treatment and an abrasion treatment. They have been tested in external labs for abrasion (martindale test), UV resistance, Vamp Flex, and Ignition (fire).”

“It can be wiped clean with a soft cloth and weak soapy solution.”

“Cork fabric is soft, supple, strong, vegan, eco-friendly, sustainable, water resistant, durable, antimicrobial and hypoallergenic.”

Kraftex (paper fabric) – in stock

From the website:

“Kraftex or washable paper is a leather and fabric alternative that is lightweight and washable. It’s also vegan friendly, as no animal products are used in its manufacture. … Washable paper is produced from cellulose fiber. This is a substrate of wood, and is a natural material.”

“This light and versatile material sews, cuts, and washes just like fabric. The fiber-based texture softens and crinkles with handling and washing. It was also known as faux leather paper as it will aged and soften, forming wrinkly marks like leather.”

Here are the colours of Kraftex available right now. Some colours may vary due to different monitor settings.
