On October 7, Denmark’s Spoor Leather and Switzerland based Oeko-Tex will join forces to outline their collaboration to provide 100% transparency and traceability in the leather supply chain from the farm to retail store.

From responsible sourcing and laser marking, through to QR code labelling for finished leather products, Spoor and Oeko-Tex will explain how the industry can work together to create full transparency for leather goods from the very start of the supply chain to the end, and make that information available for tanners, brands and end consumers.
