This article was first published ILM September-October 2014 page 68. Part 1 is also available on this website. In the first part of this article (ILM May/June page 20-22) we learned about the properties that make leather such a unique material. It was also shown how cost pressures (hides, energy, environmental costs) can lead tanners to making wrong decisions about their production process by sacrificing quality and ecology. The following part addresses the ecological production of leather, which, along with quality and the appeal of the final leather, forms the base for a sustainable and successful marketing model for leather.
