Leatherbiz announces free feature article! Promising controversy, a sports media group in Germany recently set up a discussion between senior representatives of campaign group PETA and the country’s leather sector. Respectful dialogue won the day.



It may have wanted sparks to fly, but the resulting conversation was calm, dignified and constructive, which will surprise no one who knows Thomas H.. He runs Lederfabrik Josef Heinen GmbH, the company that his family set up in Wegberg, North Rhine-Westphalia, in 1891, and is currently first vice-chairman of Germany’s national leather industry association, VDL.
