Save Water & Energy

Make and impact by reducing the impact


The premise of the Sahara leather program is to reduce the water-usage, chemical usage and drum/machinery time (equating to reduced energy usage) during the retannage process.

The Sahara solution is comprised of specialized and innovative chemistry. Then using osmosis the leather is able to take-in the chemicals, even in a low bath (minimal water).

With this improved chemical and water intake the leather doesn’t require as much water or chemical use, and doesn’t need to be in the drum as long as traditional tanning methods.

Water is the driving force of all nature
