Leather Production Ethiopia

Pittards has operated its tannery in Edjersa since 2005 and processes both hides and skins in the manufacture of leather for gloves (including premium sports gloves), footwear and footwear linings here.

The majority is shipped overseas to the manufacturing facilities of worldwide brands, making it the leading leather exporter in Ethiopia – but is also an important local supplier.



The commitment and training of the UK technical team has played a crucial role in the rapid development of expertise and knowledge in Ethiopia, and the link to the UK R&D hub ensures best practice in manufacturing and technical development.
