In this issue, At the Lectra Motor Show in March, the leather and automotive industries came together to examine the future trajectory of car design. The development of self-driving cars may appear to marginalise leather as an interior material, but the ongoing need for luxury, personalisation and durability ensure that the future outlook is bright, as Leather International reports.

And, A team from Biosk, including Richard Daniels, Jiasheng Su, Falei Zhang and Zhuangdou Zhang, examine ways to eliminate effluent from liming, acid and salt pickling, and chromium tanning processes through high-volume wet-blue manufacturing.

More than 800 exhibitors showcased their products and services at this year’s APLF Leather & Materials+ fair, which took place on 13–15 March.

Andrea Guolo looks at how political and economic trends around the world are impacting the sector.
