In his presentation titled ‘The beauty, versatility and sustainability of leather’, Henriquez will give an update on Leather Naturally before exploring why brands and retailers should use leather and the benefits of the material, as well as the significance of internationally recognised manufacturing protocols and certifications which make the leather supply chain transparent and accountable. Henriquez will also touch on recyclability and repairability as well as unpicking confusion over labelling such as ‘leather’, ‘vegan leather’ and other marketing terms.
