Tan Leather beside Moss and Flower Samples

Accelerating our journey towards next-generation bio-based leather

For over twenty years, we have invested in pioneering new initiatives that optimise and improve sustainability, quality and productivity. Our two new tanning technologies, which have been intensively developed over the last four years, will increase the bio-content and end-of-life biodegradability properties of our leather, as well as remove fossil fuel, oil-derived components and heavy metals from processes and products to achieve a circular future for natural leather.

With our new BioTAN® and FreeTAN® innovations, we are further raising the bar for environmentally sustainable leather standards. These revolutionary new technologies being a vital next step on our journey to increase the bio-based renewable carbon content of our leather and to further cement our key role in supporting car makers’ environmental targets.

The leather of the future for Bridge of Weir is 100% bio-based content, completely chrome-free, heavy metal-free, aldehyde-free, and entirely biodegradable. These latest technologies will provide our customers with further evidence of Bridge of Weir’s position as the leader in the supply of environmentally sustainable Fine Automotive Leather for the world’s luxury car brands.
