THE PROCESS

When perfection is the end-goal, every little detail counts in the process from start to finish”

Over the years we have honed our skills – from one generation to the next. Each step honours our time-proven techniques in producing the right colour, uniformity and durability in our leather.  
Once we achieve this transformation, the leather can be finished in numerous ways to achieve the desired texture, pliability and water resistance. Tanning animal hides into leather is the science of converting animal proteins into a stable material that will not break down or decay.

Mossop Leather exclusively tan bovine cow hides.  Our tannage process uses a high exhaustion system that yields a very stable material, excellently suited to make firm and compact shoe upper leathers.  Our finishing processes use high efficiency applications that yield leather which is consistent in colour and performance.

Re-hydrating, Re-tanning, dyeing and fat-liquoring to give character to the leather.

Mossop receives wet-blue from its suppliers. We then rewet, set, reach, sort, split and shaving and then up in the dye-yard. The dye yard, is all about giving the leather the ‘character’ that needed for a certain market. During this phase of re-tanning, you can change the look, feel, fullness, weight and colour of the leather to add the characteristics that make a particular bag, shoes, jacket, car seat or other end product stand out in the marketplace. It's in these combinations of processes that Mossop recycles around 15 million cups of coffee in water per year.

We tailor-make leather for your end product, by applying the different technologies that you choose, whether in single form or a combination. Our High Performance Technical Leathers that form part of this range include:

Improving the leather quality and finishing it with style

Even after having been given the desired look and feel in the re-tanning stage. We apply a surface coating which improves the leather quality and look. This leather finishing may include oiling, brushing, embossing, giving it a matte or gloss finish or create a standout design colour finishing.

Transforming the leathers to fashionable items

Once finished, the finished leathers are shipped to manufacturers who transform the leathers into fashionable items such as a beautiful leather bag or a stylish shoe.
