Apple proudly defines FineWoven as a “resilient micro-twill” fabric boasting a luxurious “suede-like texture.” What sets it apart is its eco-friendly composition—crafted from 68% post-consumer recycled polyester, it carries a considerably lighter carbon footprint compared to leather. Worth noting, Apple has transitioned away from leather for its accessories, favoring this innovative material.
