Noupelle is based on the values of design and upcycling, the name is a synthesis of the words 'nouvelle' which means new and ‘pelle’ which means skin/leather, pelle is used as both a material and a metaphor.

We wish to redefine the word 'new'. We upcycle leather off-cuts to give them a second purpose and each product a new skin!


Design is the most elemental ingredient of Noupelle. It's only with a detailed design that we can put the off cuts of leather to a brand new use, reviving, rescuing and reimagining!

Leather no matter how carefully planned, generates a ton of waste.
A large number of pieces fall on the floor which seem unusable!
