AHLSKOG TANNERY – FI
@ : firstname.lastname@example.org – WEB : www.ahlskog.fi
This family business created in the 1950s started out with the production of lamb coming from South America. In the 1990s, the company started to produce deer and reindeer leather and has made the latter its speciality. Very few tanneries offer reindeer leather. Reindeer is mainly used for clothing due to its properties which include its natural fineness and its silky texture.
ANIL TANNERY – TR
@ : email@example.com – WEB : www.aniltannery.com
Anil Tannery, a Turkish family company, initially sold hides and meat, developing over the generations with the production of finished lamb and sheep leather, then opening a second tannery for the production of bovine leather. Production is 100% integrated and this coupled with R&D investments allows the company to meet the varied demands of their clients from the clothing, leather goods and footwear sectors, ranging from mid-end to luxury markets. Anil Tannery has also adopted responsible production with both tanneries being located in areas that have their own water treatment and gas recycling systems, meaning they are very close to producing zero pollution. All the chemical products used in their production are environmentally friendly and have REACH certification.
CURTUME RUSAN – BR
@ : firstname.lastname@example.org – WEB : www.curtumerusan.com.br
This Brazilian tannery founded in the 1980s quickly specialised in suede flesh split. Since then it has become its leading product. The tannery produces a variety of versions of the product (cracked, perforated, coloured, printed…) to meet the demands for customisation from their clients. With this product, Curtume Rusan positions itself almost exclusively on the footwear market and today counts the leading sports shoe labels among its customers. Mindful of its duty to the environment, Curtume Rusan tannery is determined to continually improve its environmental performance, meet legal requirements and avoid pollution. To achieve this, the company uses environmentally-friendly production techniques, combined with modern technology that minimises the volume of water needed to process the leathers and reduces the environmental impact.
DERMA DERI – TR
@ : email@example.com – WEB : www.dermaderi.com
This is a Turkish tannery founded in 1971, which was initially specialised in the tanning and production of clothing from goat and lamb leather. In the 1990s, the company started to produce deer leather from New Zealand and has made this product its speciality. The grain of deer leather is around 2mm thick with a pronounced marking, and it is often used for gloves and leather goods for its strength and because it does not crease. Among the innovations offered by Derma Deri, there is very fine deer leather, just 0.3/0.4 mm, which can be used for clothing.
GD TAYLOR – IT

Their strong point is to offer a wide range of colours and finishes.

KYOTO LEATHER – JP
@ : email@example.com – WEB : http://www.kyotoleather.com
The Kyoto Leather label is the fruit of the association of a consultancy firm, a tannery and a dyeing firm, all of which are Japanese. It has also been selected by the government to promote Japanese leather. A proportion of its production is made from the Japanese bovine race, the Wagyu, and the aim is to increase supply. But what really makes this Japanese firm stand out is the printing on leather they offer, produced in a traditional manner. The designs are mostly inspired by Japanese culture, particularly by kimonos, and are printed with extreme precision, allowing even the smallest detail to be clearly visible. An incredible finish on leather, ideally suited to small leather goods collections.

SAKAMOTO CORP – JP

This Japanese company is specialised in Kurozan leather, also known as the ‘black diamond’ of leather for its dark and shiny appearance. This leather is bovine leather from the Japanese Wagyu race (Kobe beef) which is dipped in tanning agents then in liquid iron, producing a chemical reaction that gives the leather its black colour. The lustrous finish is obtained thanks to the application of many layers of lacquer which is then hand-polished to give the leather even more shine. Kurozan is a rare leather that is only produced in Japan. It can be used for leather goods and footwear but also for clothing.
