Located in Graulhet in the French department of the Tarn in Southern France, the Tannerie du Loubat was taken over in March by Renaud Martinet.
The tannery specialises in the production of bovine and goat leather with its raw materials sourced nationally. The bovine leathers produced are mainly used for greasy or full-grain nubuck leathergoods, while the goat leathers are for shoe uppers and linings.
Currently, the Tannerie du Loubat is working closely with its Research and Development department to diversify its activities.
The company intends to use its expertise to diversify into vegetable tanning. It believes that this tanning process will be of benefit when treating and tanning cattle hides, and so contribute to satisfying customer requirements.
