Arisa takes part in the Together for Decent Leather programme, a three year programme that focuses on bettering the labour conditions of leather workers in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. As part of this programme, overviews of trends in production and trade of leather and leather products are drafted, one for each of the production countries. Arisa is happy to publish the country overview for India today, in which information can be found on the production of leather and leather products in India, where these are shipped to, and what companies are buying them. Download the report here. The report can also be found on the Together for Decent Leather website.
The overview for Pakistan can be found on the Together for Decent Leather website as well. For Bangladesh, the overview will soon be finalised and placed on the programme’s website. Both of these overviews are drafted by SOMO.
