STUDY OF LEATHER ALTERNATIVE FROM BACTERIAL CELLULOSE- A REVIEW
Keywords:Leather, vegan, SCOBY, biodegradable
Leather study is a field in archaeology. This study focus on the production of vegan leather from SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast). SCOBY requires carbon source, oxygen and statistical conditions for fermentation, it is kept especially away from direct sunlight because it effects fermentation process. First process is culture of SCOBY called mother SCOBY and end product is baby SCOBY produced from mother SCOBY. Vegan leather has many advantages as they are eco-friendly, zero waste producing, sustainable, biodegradable, non-toxic, low cost product, and have low carbon footprint. Vegan leather is alternative source of plastic packaging material. In this review efforts have been made to explore the wide scope of vegan leather and practices in this field across the world.
