Why are millennials turning away from leather?

Worldwide
Published:  25 June, 2019

This is the question Technical Editor Karl Flowers explores in the July – August 2019 print and digital app edition of International Leather Maker (ILM). In his article, Flowers identifies what defines and drives millennials and offers a fresh perspective on how the leather industry can appeal to this influential demographic. 

The new issue, available now, also features a detailed country report into the leather industry in Thailand and goes behind the scenes at traditional pit tanner Thomas Ware in Bristol, UK, to find out how this nearly 180-year-old company is future-proofing its business with a focus on innovation and high-quality, artisan leathers. Furthermore, the latest edition also includes a comprehensive round-up of the latest product launches and developments in leather chemicals. Other editorial highlights include:

• Review of the 4th ILM Automotive Leather Supply Chain Conference in Europe
• A guide to technical data sheet (TDS) and material safety data sheet (MSDS)
• Chromium species and testing
• A preview of ACLE in Shanghai

In addition to these premium editorial features, the July-August 2019 edition also includes regular items such as news, the Redwood Column, raw materials prices and trends, industry viewpoints and more.
