Apple introduces FineWoven as leather replacement

During the Wonderlust event, Apple introduced FineWoven as a more environmentally friendly alternative to the leather used in Apple parts and accessories.

Environmental impact was a big theme during the September event. Lisa Jackson, vice president of environment, policy and social initiatives, discussed the many options the company has as it moves toward zero carbon emissions. Apple has officially stopped using leather and replaced it with FineWoven, announcing it for the newly launched Apple Watch Ultra 2 and Series 9.

Finely woven

According to Apple, FineWoven is made from over 60 percent recycled material and has a satin-like surface. The material has been integrated into magnetic loop straps and modern buckles and is available in multiple colors. The Cupertino-based company announces that the partnership between them and fashion brand Hermes will continue, although the premium leather straps have been replaced with a durable silicone option and new woven straps. Apple also introduced new Nike wristbands during the event.
