Mouthcoating Wine Yields Torsocoating Coats with “Wineleather” Invention

<Usually, if Unfiltered is sporting “wearable wine,” an accident has occurred. But the idea could take on new meaning with the invention of “wineleather.” Architect and designer Gianpiero Tessitore unveiled his new eco-friendly material at the Vinitaly trade fair last month, where curiosity-seekers could lounge on Brunello-hued sofas and poufs upholstered in a substance made from the grape pomace discarded by Italian wineries.

“The breakthrough came in 2014 when I realized that [the] fashion, furniture and leather industries were still missing a green and cruelty-free alternative to traditional animal and synthetic leathers,” Tessitore told Unfiltered via email. Tessitore experimented with grape fibers and, having yielded promising results, he soon made another happy discovery: Italian wineries would give their pomace to Tessitore free of charge.

 “Wineries are very excited about our innovation and are willing to cooperate with us,” Tessitore said. Next up for Tessitore’s company, Vegea, is a prototype product reveal in the fall to show off vinous clothes, handbags and other accessories. Will tomorrow’s glitterati someday sip and wear Champagne simultaneously? Tessitore’s looking into that, too.>
