“Leather making, supply chains and true craftsmanship” is a 20-minute episode featuring three articles by ILM columnist Michael Redwood, which have been published in the Comments section of the ILM website. In “Things tanners need to do to make great leather”, Dr Redwood enumerates ten key steps, including appreciating leather with its defects, environmental responsibility and adequate market pricing. The second article in the podcast looks at “Changing supply chains in the leather industry”, while “Leathermaking with pride” discusses how modern geopolitics has become a major influence on the leather industry.

Each episode of ILM’s podcast series is designed to appeal to all parts of the leather supply chain, including tanners, traders, suppliers, academia and research organisations, OEMs, brands and retailers. To download or listen to the free-of-charge podcasts, please click here.
