Creating high-tech leather from tannery waste

E-Leather manufactures leather made from re-woven leather fibres, which are extracted from tannery waste. The material looks and feels like traditional leather and is more durable and lighter, adapting easily to customers’ needs. It is the only manufacturer of high-tech composite leather.

"In the search for the lifeblood of growth – cash, it is possible to find investment funds which offer far more than this. In ETF's case our experience of working with them has, in fact, exceeded our expectations. They have provided a very useful sounding board for evaluating strategic options and a flow of valuable trade and investor introductions."

"People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it's safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs."
