Cooking new materials is an independently developed technique which aims to process biowastes into a soft but yet robust leather-like material. Banana and orange peels or soy-milk are combined with a natural binding agent as a substrate.The resulting composite material can be easily reused after use by recooking. It is a 100% biodegradable, zero-waste natural product. Moreover, the bio-material provides similar toughness, durability and water resistance as normal leather material.
