"Our industry is the oldest re-cycling activity in the world: we transform the skin of an animal that has been bred either for its meat or its milk into a magnificent material - leather, that, in its turn is made into quality, long-lasting and reparable products."
Frank Boehly: President of the national council of leather.
Skin is a natural product, and the leather it becomes comes exclusively from the transformation of animal skins which would, otherwise, become waste.
Over several thousands of years of tradition, man has transformed animal skins and made them into a splendid "living" leather. Its natural state and its nobility give it a great added value which we owe to the well-being of the animal it came from, because if this were not the case the skin would be permanently marked.
The "Cuirs du Futur" workshops embrace tomorrow's world by laying the foundation of a responsible production and creating a durable product.
Social ethics and human ecology
Our factory's strength is owed to the diversity of ages in our workforce, to gender dimension with as many women as men thereby we have acquired over time an exceptional expertise and know-how.
We encourage the passing down of technical know-how from our most experienced staff to the youngest who come to us on training contracts, like a father did to his son.
We pride ourselves by promoting well-being at work whether it be in terms of ergonomics or respecting the work rhythm and breaks of each person.
On top of that, tailored training programs are available to all, which enable us to have a multi-skilled team, thus cutting down the risk of routine and weariness. It is by making the job as interesting as possible to our staff that we are ready to progress into the 21st century.
