A bioneutral, nature birthed, truly shape-shifting matter.

This one happens to be a plastic-free plant alternative to leather.

Natural rubber & minerals, structural colorant, agro-waste fibers, fillers like coconut & rice hulls and plant oils allow MIRUM® to connect and be molded into shape without any forced processes - and waste-water!, but to rather simply utilize the quantity already present through the natural ingredients themselves, ditching glue and other similar adhesives altogether.

Crafted using green chemistry, the technology behind MIRUM® grants it the opportunity to break down into its natural elements at end-of-life and become a nutrient of our invaluable ecosystem, returning to Earth's warm embrace once anew.

The following might interest you designers:

"The Primary Collection comes in four plant personalities — corn, rice, coconut, and cork. These SKUs of MIRUM® showcase natural variety of plant input color and texture variation.

The Signature Collection offers more customization options than Primary MIRUM® with regard to color, shine, texture, grain, scent, temper, thickness, and fabric backers.

Available fabric backers: White/Black Cotton Interlock, White/Black Cotton Canvas - organic cotton & other natural backers available upon request."


Naturally circular.

100% Recyclable.

100% Returnable to Earth. Though, they don't look to target the rapid timeframe of biodegradability - but rather aim to put their focus on the lone durability of the product.

Well, fashion, of course. The range is following - accessories, footwear, apparel & clothing details, etc.

Not to omit automotive and furniture applications, such as upholstery - you can really get creative.



Production process

The abovementioned base ingredients are first mixed & shaped into sheets, forming a unique combination of characteristics and aesthetics. After the mechanical processing, curing & finishing touches like patterns and fabric backers come into play, applying and adding texture to the material. The texture is imparted in a single step, during the heating and pressing stage of the process where the material connects with the backing through a fully natural way - without the need for any adhesives at all.

"MIRUM is a designer's dream." Just like that.
