Christina Trautmann, Head of the LWG, and Egbert Dikkers, Board Chair at LN, announced the special day to celebrate the “durability, versatility of an upcycled material from another industry” at the APLF Dubai press conference at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

“We adopted the World Leather Day to promote the positive attributes of this wonderful material,” explained Dikkers.

Both organisations have shared images and logos celebrating the day, which will return next year.
