Since the dawn of time, leather has fascinated humanity; it is part of our daily lives. A unique and innovative renewable material, leather is a source of never-ending creativity. It can take on an infinite variety of forms, and has become a highly prized material inspiring the most incredible creations. The increasingly wide range of applications - from fashion accessories to the world of decoration and even to industry - confirms its fabulous potential.

CTC's new publication, containing images and a number of samples, is a great introduction to "The multiple facets of Leather". Essential reading, its educational style covers every stage of the manufacturing process, starting from the raw material. The tanning process transforms animal hides and skins into leather, a uniquely sensual material.

The book presents leather finishes, care, quality control and the relationship between leather and the environment. It ends with leather's incredible power of attraction, and its extraordinary capacity to appeal to our deepest senses.
