ILM Deputy Editor Tom Hogarth revisits three articles around today’s challenges for leather’s public perception in the latest episode of View from the Top podcast.

The newest ILM podcast episode looks at how outdated production methods are still affecting leather’s image, why the industry needs to be as careful as it is when developing new innovations and how the Higg MSI has skewed the big picture to favour synthetics compared with natural materials including leather.
