A barometer for the industry, the survey takes the pulse of the tanning industry to find identify key challenges, concerns and successes.

In this edition, ILM also spoke to key tanners in a market report for Kenya, to find out how the industry there is faring against many challenges beyond the Covid-19 pandemic and geopolitical tensions. In two separate features, we also spoke to fish leather companies Inversa and Seven Leagues, who are taking unique approaches to responsible tanning and business.

Elsewhere in this issue, Heller-Leder President and CEO Thomas Strebost explains why the tanner has decided to work with Bolt Threads to tan a mushroom-based biomaterial, and ILM gets an exclusive on the development of APLF’s one-off event in Bangkok in October 2022.

Alongside all this, ILM September/October also includes your favourite regular features including the latest raw materials analysis from theSauerReport Editor Ian Banks, the Redwood Comment and a Talking Point feature where we asked industry professionals whether tanning needs to move away from using fossil fuel based chemical sources.
