‘Leather is a noble material’

Yoann, skin classifier at Alric Tannery

Leather manufacturers discard scarred pieces of skin. By using this type of leather the aim is to restore its value and create awareness of what causes the damage. Since tanneries depend on contemporary meat production techniques, scarred leather is appearing more and more frequently. In the first vessel, the metal ‘bone structure’ beneath evokes the stretched skins found in the slaughterhouse. Tough leather is combine in the second with soft lambskin as a reminder of the crossbreeding process. The third combines leather with a vegetable material to recall hay puncturing the skin.
