In 2022, Senreve started using BioFabbrica — produced by the Modern Meadow biotech company that uses biofabrication to create sustainable materials — to launch Vegan Terra Leather, which Chung describes as soft, supple and lightweight, yet durable, abrasion-resistant and water-resistant. BioFabbrica, made from 100 percent plant-based proteins and bio-polyurethane, “is a great substitute for animal leather, with a lot of sustainable qualities like less water consumption, less chemical usage and better color rendering. We were the first accessory brand to use that material commercially,” said Chung. Senreve also utilizes a differentiated pigmentation process that produces no dye runoff.
