A formal factory should have the National Development and Reform Commission’s waterborne PU project approval, the State Environmental Protection Agency’s environmental assessment report, and the State Administration for Industry and Commerce project registration. Water-based PU leather has no pungent odor, no harmful chemicals. It also can be identified by the chemical test report from SGS, BV, and other institutions.

16. Q: What is GRS? Do you have GRS products?
A: The Global Recycle Standard (GRS) was originally developed by Control Union Certifications (CU) in 2008 and ownership was passed to Textile Exchange on January 1, 2011. The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is an international, voluntary, full product standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of Recycled Content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices, and chemical restrictions. The goal of the GRS is to increase the use of recycled materials in products and reduce/eliminate the harm caused by its production.
The Global Recycled Standard is intended for use with any product that contains at least 20% Recycled Material. Each stage of production is required to be certified, beginning at the recycling stage and ending at the last seller in the final business-to-business transaction. Material Collection and Material Concentration sites are subject to self-declaration, document collection, and on-site visits.
More and more major international brands prefer selecting supplier which have GRS certification as a condition. By recycling the recyclable renewable fiber raw materials during the production process and after use, and then making clothing, luggage, a series of GRS certified products are also favored by consumers and brands. Our company has passed GRS certification and can provide waterborne PU leather products using recycled polyester as the leather base fabric.
