Pittards was established in Yeovil in 1826 and has a heritage in the development and manufacture of performance leathers that are used by major brands around the world. Due to the technical nature of the leathers, Pittards is usually featured as a named component where it is used in products and has therefore built a branded reputation around the quality of its products.
Pittards has tanneries in the UK and Ethiopia as well as finished product factories in both countries, allowing for vertical manufacturing efficiencies at both premium and volume price points. Pittards is REACH compliant with long experience with MRSLs and working within the ZDHC framework.
