Leather Naturally has recently published a very didactic article entitled “What is leather made of and where does it come from?”.

Interesting aspects emerge from this publication, such as as the main origin of the hides of our industry: they mostly come from cattle, followed very far by sheeps, goats and pigs.

In addition, it answers interesting questions for the communication of the tanning industry. The production process is explained by answering the question “How does a hide become hard-wearing, beautiful leather?” and, in addition, it also analyzes which are the main typologies of leather and in which countries a greater production takes place: Italy, China and Brazil.

This is a very visual and simple article, highly recommended reading.
