Higgs Material Sustainability Index (MSI) for Leather

The inappropriate methodologies calculating the Higg MSI had led decision makers to replace leather by unsustainable, fossil fuel-derived, synthetic products. (Dr. Kerry Senior, International Council of Tanners)

Reasons for rejection:

  1. Data from not later than 2013, not representative of the current status
  2. Data refer to Brazilian and US herds only
  3. Wrong average lifespan of bovine (5 years instead of 2-3years) will increase the environmental impact
  4. No differentiation between grain- and suede leather
  5. The methodology for the assessment of the impact of Chemistry is not transparent
  6. Leather is a byproduct of the beef and dairy industry
  7. Disregard of leather’s durability and reparability

For these reasons the ICT, International Union of Leather Technologists and Chemists Societies (IULTCS), Leather and Hide Council of America (LHCA), China Leather Industry Association (CLIA) and the Leather Association in the European Union (Cotance) advocate for an alternative rating system.

Unanimously all above organizations suggest applying the EU Product Environmental Footprint Category Rules (PEFCR), using current and reliable datasets. Based on the accurate data evaluation of leather as a natural resource would be improved.

Comment on the pandemic


Dear customers and partners,

We very much appreciate your concerns about our wellbeing in this crisis.

Until today manufacturing of our products is unfazed by the lockdown. We are producing at full throttle.

As a precaution we created new shift plans for the shop floor to restrict personal contact to a minimum. 

Most of our office staff have remote access to our systems allowing working from home.

For the foreseeable future supply of our products is guaranteed.

We wish you and your families all the best for this time of crisis.
