Practical traceability in the leather supply chain

On October 7, ILM hosted a superb webinar on traceability in the leather supply chain, one of the best I have attended during the Covid-19 webinar floods. The chosen speakers explained what traceability was all about and showed what tools they had created to enact a functional traceability system from farm to shop.


Sustainable production

Sustainable farming: Summer in Australia: droughts, bush fires and record heat waves and floods. Farmers have a hard life and many are leaving the land because they can no longer make a living. My parents bought a rundown dairy farm when I was eight so that the family could enjoy working holidays near the sea. Ever since, I have enjoyed being a part-time farmer but I am glad we do not have to make a living from it.


Luxury brands drive crocodile quality improvements

A Northern Territory crocodile farm is expanding its operations to meet the growing demand for high quality leather by major international fashion labels. Darwin Crocodile Farm has about 73,000 crocodiles and currently supplies leather to prominent French and Italian designers, including to Louis Vuitton and Hermes.
