Francis Tsang, co. Founder of the ChromeFree Leather Alliance writes that due to the adverse living conditions of the animals in Tibet (cold, wind, snow), Yak Leather is denser in fiber structure than typical cow leather. Therefore, Yak Leather requires only half of the thickness to achieve the same heat insulation and toughness as bovine leather.



The unique properties of the Yak fiber structure are further enhanced through our innovative Zeology tanning and processing techniques which provide automotive CMF designers with a versatile, strong, and light natural bio-based material.

We Lhasa Leather, a Community-based poverty reduction project source raw Yak hide directly from the nomads, thus reducing transport costs and ensuring that Tibetan herders maintain their animals.
