Using its own techniques and plant-based elements, today Splenda produces exclusive leathers from the most sustainable processes with the ability to send them worldwide.
Loyal to the origins and traditions of the craft, custodian of inherited knowledge, respectful to the environment, committed to security and innovation and oriented around excellence. This is Splenda Leather.
