TANNERY OF THE YEAR REPORTS

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.
