Leatherina Ltd was awarded guaranteed membership of the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO) in March 2021. This membership comes as a mark of social and environmental commitments demonstrated and implemented by the company. It has become ever more critical for businesses to visualise a sustainable future while setting the organisational mission and vision. And team Leatherina has done just that.
The international community must confront trade injustice, enforce transparency and accountability in supply chains, and secure climate financing mechanisms, living incomes and wages for the world’s smallholder agricultural producers, artisans and workers in order to successfully address the climate crisis and guarantee a sustainable future for all, the world’s leading Fair Trade organizations announced today.
The leather industry is the second largest earner of foreign currencies of Bangladesh after RMG. In order to exploit the country’s full potentials in this sector, the Bangladesh Government identified leather as a thrust sector for export. Ample supply of hides and skins, their fine grain pattern, uniform fiber structure, and competitive labor cost contribute to the overall competitiveness.
Responding to the critical needs of the corona virus pandemic, Leatherina dived into researching facemask materials, and experimenting with protective, convenient and breathable designs, in the first weeks of the outbreak.
