The Framework for Leather Manufacture

The book provides a clear framework outlining for the first time the importance of the chemical processes and their relationship with the physical mechanical operations that are carried out to change a raw hide into a beautiful piece of leather. The authors trace the transition of leather manufacture of earlier times to that of an efficient, advanced and ecologically sound industry in the global economy today. There is also a comprehensive study of how complex environmental concerns can be addressed, with treated water returned responsibly to the wider community and chemicals reused or regenerated. 
This is essential reading for anyone in the leather supply chain,
from raw material suppliers, chemists, tanners and end users
who want to understand about how leather is created.
