Besides animal cruelty, do you know that leather production pollutes the environment with toxic and hazardous chemicals used in the tanning process? Moreover, the common practice of making leather more durable heavily depends on plastics - a petroleum-based product that cannot be degraded.

Why not choosing an ethical and better alternative for our environment? M-Tex by Bell Society, a biomaterial made by converting coffee skin waste and using non-toxic chemicals and natural colorants, utilizes bacteria and organic substances as an innovative solution to create a leather substitute.

Brought to you by Fabrica X and  Fidelity Internationaland co-organized with Bell Society, the Book Binding Workshop provides a tactile experience for you to feel and experiment with an eco-friendly material - M-Tex, from stitching to assembling your own notebook.

Join us to celebrate the re-birth of coffee skin waste!
