About us

Founded in 1867, Leather International is the leading magazine for the leather industry. With in-depth reports and industry features that cover all aspects of our marketplace, Leather International is the number one choice for leather makers and semi processed leather manufacturers across the globe.

There are more than 10,000 tanneries worldwide but as with so many industries, a small percentage of these tanneries contribute at least 80% to overall output. In turn, they are the major buyers in our marketplace which presents a challenge for the publisher and the advertiser alike.

Our database has been compiled from a wide variety of leading sources including trade associations, editorial contacts, exhibition attendees and supplier client lists. Our database numbers over 14,000 and we have gone to great lengths to ensure that only those who have a large output qualify to receive Leather International.
