Long Live


We love animals. We love this planet. And guess what? We also love leather. That left us only one option: invent a way to harmlessly grow the material we love.

We believe technology can bring us back to a time when humans lived in harmony with nature. We're committed to pursuing innovations that can help maintain that balance for eons to come.

We're Hiring!

Our vision is to become the world’s largest tissue-engineering platform—first, by developing real, ethical calf, crocodile, and ostrich leather for use across a range of industries. Then, we’ll work to evolve the technology for regenerative medicine.
