Myths Surrounding Leather Manufacturing

by Haryana Leather Chemical Leather Chemical Manufacturers

Synthetic vs Genuine Leather has been a moot point for quite some time and it has gained its momentum in recent years. When it comes to describing “Leather” then the only terminology which is applicable to materials that is obtained from Animal Origin, whose collagen is left intact, without breaking the fibers physically.

However, keeping the basic aspects of leather, if you would look closer then there is a huge glut of widespread myths and misconceptions surrounding the Leather, its manufacture and its constituents, which are sadly and grossly exaggerated. Some of those are given below, just take a look…

 Myth #1

Animals are killed for their skins and leather manufacturers promote the inhumane animal slaughter


I know it is the widespread myth, which somehow has been heard and experienced by each of us, but on the contrary, the fact is something very different, which suggests that leather is a byproduct of the meat industry.

To be honest, the 95% of all the leathers are made from 4 major animal sources: Cow, Goat, and Sheep & Buffalo and surprisingly, not a single animal is killed for their skins, but are all slaughtered only for meat. You would be surprised to know that the value of the Skin is significantly lesser than Meat; therefore it bears no sense on the economic ground to kill an animal for the Skin.


Myth #2

Leather is non-biodegradable


The leather is made up of 70% Animal Skin, 20% of Chemicals which are mostly biodegradable and 10% Moisture. Therefore, the leather is indeed more Bio-Degradable and does not harm nature in any possible way. That’s the reason syntan manufacturers, prefer to do leather business.


Myth #3

Leather manufacturing is purely toxic


Look closely, any processing industry involves the usage of high water, leather finishing agents, and chemicals, which is considered to be toxic generally, however, the companies like Haryana Chemicals take strict control measures to manage the pollutants occurring from the manufacturing process. They consider the significant steps to manage the environment and practice sustainable manufacturing and has adopted the highest international standards and a regulatory requirement on the use of Banned Substances.


 Myth #4

Chrome tanning is non- environment-friendly


You need to know that leather manufacturers utilize leather processing chemicals, and use Chrome, Natural Vegetable Extracts and other Organic Chemicals for tanning. And the chrome usage includes the 95% of available Chrome Ores in Earth, which are used in industries outside leather, and only a minor portion ends up in Leather

These are some of the prevalent myths around leather manufacturing units and can be seen completely getting removed from the leather industry by the leading manufacturing leaders, none other than Haryana Chemicals.
