Attending this course provided an understanding of the chemicals involved in the leather making process, as well as compliance and international legislation - This includes a summary of common restricted substances found in both raw to tanned and tanned to finished leather and how to avoid them.

The course also introduced the Leather Working Group and their best practice Environmental Audit Protocol which many brands will expect their tanneries to have committed to.

Attendees were also given an overview of the tanning process involved in both chrome tanned and chrome-free leather as well as common problems that are encountered during the tanning process including the direct effects of animal husbandry on the quality of leather.
