Modern technology has been harnessed to the traditional skills and craftsmanship of the leather industry, providing a top quality chamois leather product with a personal customer service.

We distribute our chamois leather and other products around the world, through agents, distributors, wholesalers and direct outlets, depending on the territory. 

Today Hutchings & Harding continues to excel as a tannery for chamois leather, skiver leather and pickled grains. Our main activity remains the tanning of selected sheep pelts from around the world – exactly as it was when first established over 100 years ago.
