Nova Kaeru: Innovation, quality and sustainability

Made from natural leaves of a plant called Elephant Ear (Alocasia Macrorrhisa), this biological tissue is surprisingly comfortable and resistant, and is an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional materials.

beLEAF ™ is made from leaves that are cultivated and collected in sustainable areas, grown alongside reforestation farms near the Nova Kaeru factory in Três Rios, Brazil.

The process uses only resins and organic polymers of vegetable origin, and the residues are later composted and used as nutrients for the soil. The factory's close proximity to the reforestation farms eliminates the need for long-distance transportation, reducing its carbon footprint. The water used in the transformation process is pH corrected and reused as irrigation for the reforestation farms, further reducing its environmental impact.

A vegan material with characteristics similar to leather. beLEAF™ is the most innovative and eco-friendly material ever created.

This product of natural and renewable origin is surprisingly comfortable and resistant.

The leaves are collected in sustainable areas and planted together with reforestation farms - all neighboring the Nova Kaeru company.

In addition to requiring little of the environment compared to traditional materials, beLEAF™ also eliminates the carbon footprint of its production.

We Preserve the Pirarucu Fish
We Preserve te Amazon
We Fight for Life

In the Amazon, over more than 10 years of hard work with our partners and environmental preservation institutes, we have managed to reverse pirarucu predatory fishing and transform an endangered species into a fish with a large and wild free population and guaranteed reproduction.

In the past this fish used to be collected only for food and their skin became an ecological waste that was thrown away, causing environmental pollution.

Nowadays, after 10 years of an internationally recognized work, the PIRARUCU is fished following the strictest sustainable fishing standards practices required by IBAMA and international bodies such as CITES.

This work has ensured an increase of over 425% over 10 years of fish availability in the Amazon and helps combat deforestation by ilegal mining in this region through the joint work of all communities.
