New ILM podcast: Leather’s place in a post-pandemic world

Published:  09 June, 2020

The latest episode of the ILM podcast series “View from the top” is now available free of charge to download and listen to here, as well as via Apple Podcast, Spotify and Deezer.

In a two-part series, ILM Editor Isabella Griffiths chats to Karl Flowers, Technical Director of sustainable leather consultancy Authenticae, industry analyst and Consultant Technical Editor to ILM, about the leather industry in a post-pandemic world. The first episode of this exclusive interview delves into the impact of the coronavirus on the leather sector, what it will take for the industry to recover, and whether we will come out of this leaner, better and stronger or ultimately, it will be survival of the fittest. The second part, which will go live on June 15, 2020, discusses a further wealth of topics, from biodegradability and GHG emissions to how leather’s image can be rebuilt post-Covid-19.
