Torn Dainese Leathers Recycled into Consumer Products

High-performance motorcycle gear is often designed to provide the max protection only once. Of course, in case they’re only a bit scratched or so, they can still be worn, but expecting them to deliver the same results when the going gets tough is wishful thinking. They’ve done their job and if you can afford and want top-drawer protection for your skin, it’s time to go shopping again.

Still, the torn leathers are expensive, and crashing once with a one-piece suit only to throw it away is such a waste. Top-notch Italian riding gear manufacturer Dainese looks like having found a way to curb this loss, as it will reportedly team up with recycling masters Regenesi for turning torn leathers into new consumer products.

Regenesi are famous for re-manufacturing various products using recycled materials instead of raw ones. We could expect the Dainese leathers who have served their owners with loyalty to be reincarnated in objects such as tablet covers, bags, various other fashionable small garments, hey fobs and pretty much anything similar which can be crafted from leather.

Not sure about how will this work, but we could hope that Dainese reveals some sort of buy-back system, offering a store credit for bringing in your leathers and leaving with new ones. The idea is very cool and environmentally-friendly, but it remains to be seen how budget-friendly it will turn out to be. Via motorbiker.
