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 June/July 2018 issue of World Leather features our first special supplement section of the year. It focuses on the furniture industry and features comment from leather groups like Moore & Giles, Cortina Leather, Boxmark and JBS Couros. We also hear from the Sustainable Furnishings Council about how furniture companies feel about leather. As well as our usual technical section, which includes a look at why the Arzignano tanning cluster could be considered leather’s Silicon Valley, this issue sees us take a detailed look at the difficult relationship between leather and synthetic alternatives. The Beast to Beauty feature explores how a relationship with Lectra has helped French furniture maker Duvivier Canapés to grow.

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.
