Headquarters of one of Hebei’s most prominent leather manufacturers, Meihua Leather Company.
On this occasion, there is substantial detail about a new lockdown in China, in the important leather-manufacturing province of Hebei.

Once again, the newsletter also includes the new Long Read component. We offer another feature that we intend to publish in the coming days in World Leather December-January. It continues our Leather Leaders series, with, this time, an in-depth conversation with the president of IULTCS, Dr Luis Zugno.
Among other thoughts, Dr Zugno shares details of the technologies that have made the biggest impression on him in the course of his long career in the leather industry.
