Gen Phoenix: Upscale Upcycling Woos Luxury Investors

The materials developer formerly known as ELeather has a new name and $18 million in fresh growth funding from some of the world’s fanciest brands. The company, which makes leather goods using sustainable farming practices, is now called Treeventure, and plans to invest in R&D to create even more environmentally-friendly products. With its new backers—including Kering Inc., LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA, and Nike Inc.—Treeventure is destined for big things.

It seems that the upcycler’s investors have diversified a bit in terms of industry, with Coach parent Tapestry, Jaguar Land Rover and Dr. Martens all on board as well as lead investor Material Impact. This ~brings new perspectives and experiences to the company~ which may help it stay ahead of the curve in future fashion trends.

Gen Phoenix is a young upcycler that has been profiting from the trend of people wanting to buy eco-friendly products. Their new investment will help them expand into the luxury fashion and footwear categories, which could mean even more environmental benefits for consumers.

With Gen Phoenix, consumers can turn wasted leather into an innovative and sustainable product. Not only is this a more eco-friendly option, but it also creates jobs in the leather industry.

Gen Phoenix’s “recycled leather” is a popular product because it features high levels of recycled content, including recycled leather and recycled plastic. Still, the firm’s final product also contains virgin plastic. This allows Gen Phoenix to create a stylish and sustainable product that is environmentally friendly.

Gen Phoenix believes that their leather-like product is the best in the market. The company has been around for over 20 years and their products have always been top-notch. They use only the highest quality materials and they never sacrifice on quality. Their customers can be sure that they’re getting a product that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional.

According to the spokesperson, Gen Phoenix is working to reduce and eliminate virgin materials from their products completely in order to improve sustainability. This innovative approach is sure to improve customer satisfaction and increase the company’s reputation as a leader in eco-friendly technologies.

The Australian company, Gen Phoenix, has developed a bio-based coating system and bio-based substitutions for any synthetic materials used in the process. Their goal is to create an ecofriendly manufacturing process that does not rely on virgin materials.

Gen Phoenix’s use of polyester in some of their pieces can be seen as a compromise between environmentalism and profitability. Polyester is not the most environmentally friendly fabric, but it has a low waste production rate and is cheap to produce. This makes it popular among sustainable brands, who want to create products that are both environmentally friendly and cost-effective. However, other sustainable brands tend to avoid using polyester altogether because of its negative environmental impact.

In the wake of tragedies like the BP Deepwater Horizon blowout and the Grenfell Tower fire, people are starting to question capitalism, consumerism and whether these systems are sustainable. Recycled plastic fabrics may seem like a way to do things differently- after all, these materials already have been used and discarded many times. But this so-called ‘recycled’ clothing is actually rarely recycled, and even when it is, microplastics are often created in the process. There is also severe environmental toll associated with this type of clothing manufacture – from dyes spilling into waterways to ‘fast fashion’ clogging up resources needed for more sustainable forms of clothing design. Ultimately, rethink everything when it comes to textile production – from how we dye fabrics to our overall shopping habits – in order to create truly sustainable clothes options for everyone
