Leather consultancy. Improve your products, technology and understanding allowing us to help you create a competitive advantage.

Dr Leather offers a wide range of leather consulting services to help support and develop all aspects within the leather value and supply chains. With almost three decades of experience and involvement in the industry, we can offer you a comprehensive scope of support to your leather business.

We have knowledge of the latest protocols, restricted substance listings, and other technical specification standards required for leather in the modern-day manufacturing environment, allowing your business to be sure they are in full compliance. We specialise in understanding and mapping specific supply chains and value chains to determine current situations and offer telescopic analysis to determine potential future risks to either defend against or take advantage of.

Our core expertise lies in the technical aspects of the leather creation process, from raw through to finished leather. Our extensive knowledge of chemistries and processes can yield significantly improved leathers, and complete new product development under strict secrecy. Our services will deliver to you the leather industry knowledge you need, to ensure successful outcomes.

We also provide an analysis service to understand current leather faults and issues, especially when the leather you are purchasing does not appear to be meeting test specifications or is generally not performing correctly. Our laboratory has a vast range of equipment where we can complete multiple physical property tests, to understand issues and offer solutions for leather related queries. We can also test synthetics and textiles, providing a broader range of services to you. Our leather testing page can be found here:

Furthermore, our experience allows us to offer expert witness testimony’s either in person or through written reports. This provides credence to your case and presents the facts in a logical manner.

We provide a leather procurement service, to allow you a streamlined route to sourcing the leathers you need. Start-up brands typically come to us to effectively outsource the leather aspect of their business, knowing that they will be provided with the best leathers for their products at the right price.
