After successfully raising over 1.5 million US dollars to fund a global campaign to promote leather, the Leather Naturally initiative now confirms that it has over 100 members
“This demonstrates the growing willingness of our industry to work together to promote the benefits of leather”, stated Chairman Egbert Dikkers, adding; “In a world that is ever-more focused on the use of recycled and sustainable materials it is important that we are sending the right messages to support the use of leather. A growing membership enables us to do this.”
