World Leather, established in 1987, is the world’s leading magazine for the leather industry. Published six times a year and three times in Chinese, it is essential reading for tanners, leather traders, manufacturers and the wider industry, featuring essential technical papers, country commentaries, topical articles and special supplements.


The April-May issue of World Leather contains the third report from the current Tannery of the Year programme, focusing on Mississippi TanTec in the US. We also bring readers the third in the series of technical articles about the greenLIFE project that launched in Arzignano in 2014, as well as a farewell article from machinery expert Walter Landmann in which he discusses some of the latest technological developments at Bergi. The Beast to Beauty feature this time hears from the winner of Tuscany’s Craft the Leather competition. There is also a special report on Stahl’s bid to buy the leather chemicals business of rival BASF and a round-up of Lectra’s third automotive leather conference in Bordeaux.

Accessible to World Leather subscribers.


Tannery of the Year was launched in 2009 to celebrate leather, to help promote the material’s use throughout the world and to share positive stories from tanners in every continent. We have in-depth reports on all the tanneries that have taken part so far, containing detailed information about their companies, the state of the industry and thousands of examples of best practice. These reports are also collected in four volumes of our Tannery of the Year book.
