On July 20th Leather Naturally launched its new website as a result of great teamwork of our Communications team. At least as important is the fact that many individuals from various countries and companies supported the process of compiling the factsheets that we have made available on the new website as a global resource to get the facts and better understand leather. Thank you very much for this! 
The new website is much more consumer focus, easy to navigate and just a great resource if you want to learn about leather. But what about the next step?  
The next step is that the industry is going to use and refer to leathernaturally.org as the global resource to better understand leather. As such, we kindly invite you make use of this industry supportive site. Some suggestions how you can do this: 
* Follow the Leather Naturally social media channels including METCHA, the oracle of leather design culture and share new posts.  
* Share Leather Naturally with your customers, with the Brands and make them aware of the site, as a great source of balanced information about leather.  
* Join Leather Naturally as a member. With your contribution we will be able to further improve our communications and ensure that the right information about leather is arriving at the right group of people. To accommodate small and big companies, we have created a new membership model, with annual fees ranging from USD 250/ for entrepreneurs, to maximum USD 2.000/ for companies with a turnover more than USD 10 million.
