The amazing handbag

I read recently that handbags were one of the earliest items of fashion. Men carried them first and the satchel even gets mentioned in the Bible. You had to carry your seeds, medicines, coins and lunch somehow. 


How many animals do you eat?

I read a lot of stories in the trade press about the climbing raw material prices and a falling number of animals to produce the leather of the future. Is this just a blip or is it a trend that will carry on long into the future? As leather is a by-product of the meat industry, what kind of protein is consumed has a massive bearing on the future of our industry.
