Leather is one of the oldest crafts known to mankind.

170,000 years ago, our hominid ancestors used the skins of the animals they hunted to protect themselves from the weather, as totems or amulets, for rudimentary musical instruments and even to carry their belongings whilst they roamed the lands.

They learned to prevent them from rotting by tanning them, and over the centuries, the use of tanned skins and hides has evolved into a well-respected industry.

Tanneries are key in this recycling chain, converting a waste product of the meat industry into a valuable material that generates jobs and wealth.
