[Luxus+ Magazine] 6 received ideas about leather

Recognized for its durability and resistance, leather is still a victim of misconceptions. That’s why the French Leather Council (FLC) has set out to re-establish the truth about this natural material with unique properties. To see whether or not leather retains the affection of the general public, the FLC has even launched a study in 2021 on the perception and uses of leather by the French. Explanations.

 

Received idea number 1: Leather gets damaged quickly.

 

This is not true. In fact, leather products can be kept for years. 63% of respondents to the FLC study believe they can keep a leather product for a very long time (compared to 39% for a textile product, 19% for a synthetic product and 18% for a product made of emerging materials). Moreover, the number of second-hand leather items also testifies to their durability, recognized by 73.3% of the French.

 

 

Received idea number 2: The leather industry is a recycling industry

 

 

This statement is true. The leather industry is inherently a recycling business. Furthermore, in the tannery, during the river work that consists in cleaning the raw hides before tanning, the residues are recovered to be transformed into fertilizers, fuels, or technical gelatin.
