Best New Technology for Leather


Prime International India Pvt, India
While burnishable grain leather is well-known, burnishable suede is not. This interesting characteristic opens up a world of design possibilities for suede, particularly for footwear.

 

Best Fashion Leather

 
Yilbay Deri San Ve Tic. Ltd Sti, Turkey
Thin die-cut, printed leather is set against another piece of leather with a deep, metallic finish resulting in a highly fashionable material perfect for garments.

 

Best Innovation for Leather

 
Teampiel International, Italy
Hair-on sheep leather undergoes a unique process whereby strips of hair are pulled through to the suede side of the leather to create a softly tufted texture on both sides of the leather.

 

Best Luxury Leather


Meqisserie Alric, France
Alric utilises a traditional tawing process to produce leather that has the advantage of great flexibility, smoothness and incomparable dyeing properties. Their leathers are so richly coloured and unique to the touch, that top luxury brands specify Alric leather for their products.

 

Best Leather Collection


Orylag, France
Exclusively produced from the fur of specially-bred Rex rabbits, Orylag furs are both light and warm, soft and silky, fine yet incredibly dense, making them so wonderful to touch. Done in double-face, the fur and reverse side can be done in a myriad of colours and patterns. Still the fur exudes a natural luminosity that creates beautiful, subtle tones.
