- Hong Kong Kin Hing Handbag Company Limited will present all its eco-friendly added value: the company manufactures women's handbags and small leather goods, using real leather, specially designed alternative materials, and fabrics :
The Hong Kong company manufactures these alternatives to leather from a microfibre, because this micro-fiber has surpassed a natural leather in its physical properties. Not only it solves the problems of natural leather, which included limited product applications, non-uniformity in finishing and tailoring difficulties, it also uses the production technology of non-toluene and water-punch fiber opening. Water punch fiber opening does not make any pollution, so it’s a major contribution to environmental protection, energy-save and pollution reduction. The water based resin material is not like any regular PU (Polyurethane) because it’s DMF-free (Dimethyl formanide). It is phthalate-free as well and therefore does not contain any heavy metal component. In addition, the component that comes from the raw material is water rather than a solvent. Therefore, once the bag product is used up, when user pass to the re-cycle organizer, this material can be decomposed/absorbed by soil.
