The boldness of a biodegradable choice

Leather in all its splendour. In the name of an innovation and development process, Conceria La Veneta has been working on a project dedicated to the creation of biodegradable leather since 2018.

Despite a reputation that discredits clean and eco-friendly work, the tanning industry has been committed to improving all production cycles from every perspective for years. The tannery is constantly in step with the progress of chemical research and trends: in this particular historical moment, it has decided to stand tall and face the will of the market by switching to a new type of leather that can be biodegradable.

La Veneta Biodegradable Leather:

the idea is to create a patented, metal free leather that has been tested in an environment suitable for controlling residues, their compatibility with the environment, and can therefore be biodegradable when the product has reached the end of its life and only under certain conditions.

A project that looks towards an increasingly ecological future.

Biodegradable leather is so...Natural!

The process that should make the finished product 90% decomposable over a 6-month period, in a completely natural way, is possible thanks to a biodegradable polymer tanning and the complete absence of metals.

Strengths of biodegradable leather:


the scrap generally produced during tanning is halved thanks to the limited use of chemical products.


shaving from biodegradable tanning is easily reusable also in agriculture and is not classified as special scrap.


biodegradable leather is more tear resistant, as the natural fibres of the leather remain more intact and maintain their natural performance.

Greener than this…

Conceria La Veneta has always proposed leather that respects the environment right from the production phase. An extremely low environmental impact is recognised with the biodegradable project.
A careful and meticulous quality control phase is provided by expert managers, ensuring that the product is not contaminated during the process: the production department has been implemented with drums suitable for processing biodegradable leather.

We are arranging for the certification of the entire process at an authorised laboratory. Expected time: March 2021.
