What is the Institute for Creative Leather Technologies (ICLT)?

The Institute for Creative Leather Technologies (ICLT) is a unique research and education centre. Our research responds to the scientific and technological needs of the automotive, fashion, footwear and allied leather industries.

Understanding new and traditional leather processing techniques expands the possibilities of how leather can be used. Our research programme has an impact on diverse sectors, including medical and technological applications. The partnerships that we have also take leather developments into engineering, media and fashion.
