Leather Naturally publishes a Guide to Modern Leather Making

Leather Naturally is proud to announce the launching of its easy-to-understand Modern Cow Leather Processing guide. This guide has been put together to become an indispensable tool for anybody wanting to know about leather, either to refresh concepts or if you are learning about leather for the first time. It has been created for designers and developers who may have no formal leather experience, students from the sectors of fashion, interiors, automotive and retail teams who want to be better informed about the leather used in the products they sell. The straightforward language makes it easy to understand and accessible to all.

The Modern Leather Making Guide, (MLMG) is a noteworthy new addition to the technical and educational material that Naturally provides, such as White papers, Fact Sheets, Newsletters and Videos. It is a comprehensive tool that anyone can consult to learn how modern leather is produced. The presentation is balanced with in-depth and informative content on hide properties, modern leather processing, chemical management, test methods and leather types, together with a visualization of a modern tannery. The document is divided in the chapters covering the whole leather making process, from hide to finished product, as well as sustainability, biodegradability, and water treatment.

The presentation was edited by Dr. Luis Zugno – Global Innovation at Buckman, IULTCS Secretary and Management Board Member of Leather Naturally, with the valuable contribution and expertise of a global team of chemists, industry professionals and companies. There is nothing like this in our industry.

In Dr. Luis Zugno’s word: “This comprehensive guide is the work of the largest global collaboration project in the leather industry to produce the finest technical, visual and inspiring presentation that elegantly communicates how modern cow leather is made. This is not my guide; it is ‘our’ team guide.”
