The history of the leather and fur auxiliary is as old as human history. At the same time, products made of leather and fur are more in demand today than ever before, from shoes to handbags and outer garments, and even automotive interiors.

The art of leather and fur production involves the preparation of a natural product with very specific properties into a material that can be processed industrially.

Chemistry has contributed to the more environmentally friendly treatment and improving of hides and skins and, in addition, has significantly increased the productivity of the operational processes and the quality of the final products.
