Qualities of Leather


Francis Tsang writes on LinkedIn that leather is based on a raw material that is a by-product of animal meat and milk, which are required by consumers. -It is a by-product of the food industry that is up-cycled, preventing 7.3 million tons of waste each year.


  • Leather is long-lasting
  • Leather products are eminently repairable
  • At its end-of-life phase, leather degrades through chemical and biological means


The leather industry is also an excellent example of the circular economy, as set out by the European Commission in December 2019. Its sustainable consumption and production support the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
