Leather Naturally’s educational and promotional activities focus on leathers made from hides and skins that are a by-product from the food industry that would otherwise mostly be turned into waste.
Responsibly made leather is a valuable alternative for oil-based products such as plastics – including PVC and Polyester – adding value to an important renewable material, via efficient and modern processing techniques.
Leather Naturally believes that the promotion of sustainably made leathers supports a continuous effort and the development of best practices supporting a circular economy. Moreover, it facilitates dialogues between the leather upstream supply chain, manufacturers and consumers.
