Sustainability. The buzzword for the new millenium.
Economic sustainability, resource sustainability, production process and finished product sustainability. Decidedly strict laws regarding environmental impact, heightened ecological awareness and customer demands, push leather item producers more and more towards using eco-sustainable leathers that are non-toxic, anallergic and metal-free.
The quest for really sustainable processes that can anyhow keep leather quality high embodies an epoch-making challenge for the tanning field. However, it also embodies a great opportunity for development in an ever more global market.
