Pittards have launched a new website which is aimed at promoting the leather industry and providing information for all associated sectors including leading brand manufacturers, investors, fashion designers, leathergoods manufacturers and even students. The site aims to provide not only clear information on all aspects of Pittards but also a far deeper understanding of leather, its potential and how it is used.

Marketing manager Caroline Spillane said: ‘The leather industry might be one of the world’s oldest but it is also one of the least understood. The brand new site aims to provide a wider range of information to help industry, investors and interested parties gain a better appreciation of the modern commercial applications of leather.’

Visitors to the new-look, easy to navigate site will find full information on the wide range of Pittards’ leathers plus detailed information on the various specialist tanning processes such as veg tanning and organic tannage. There are also details of technical applications including downloadable animations showing how they work. Extra information giving news, events and information for investors is updated regularly. The site also publishes details of Pittards’ fashion trend forecasts and colours for the coming seasons.
