Cromogenia, together with Leather Naturally & Leather Working Group, celebrates today the World Leather Day. A natural material that contributes every day to a circular society as it is a by-product of the food industry and needs to reduce our individual footprint.
World Leather Day 2023
Today we celebrate its benefits as a material and the people who make it and the innovation and expertise that continue to drive it forward. Manufacturers can produce qualities with a wide variety of properties and looks. Leather is important in a world where we are trying to do more with less and where we need to minimise waste because we have the expertise and technology to turn this by-product into a versatile and durable material.
How can we do our bit when it comes to consuming long-lasting products? By choosing leather goods, from footwear and accessories to furniture upholstery. They will wear out over a long period of time and can be repaired throughout their lifetime.
Furniture and leather are the perfect combination. Nothing compares to the rich feel, look and smell of upholstery leather and when you buy leather furniture you can be sure that it will not only stand the test of time, but it will get better with age. Is there anything more timeless than a vintage leather sofa?
Leather shoes can withstand wear-and-tear of daily use for many many years. Why? Because leather is natural and moulds comfortably to your foot. Leather is breathable yet hardwearing, easy to maintain, and can be repaired to be worn again for years. Looking to reduce your footprint? Choose leather shoes.
We live in a world where we need to make better choices in order to reduce our individual footprint. Upcycled from a natural by-product, leather is part of the circular economy and therefore part of the solution. It has all elements, long lasting, repairable, can be repurposed and handed down to the next generation.
