Leather and Textiles Physical Property

The textiles and leather industries employ
millions of people worldwide, turning raw
materials such as natural fibres (cotton and
wool) and synthetic fibres (polyester) or
treated, tanned hide into finished products
such as clothes and footwear, using multiple
complex processes.

Research and Development in the leather and
textiles industries are now more important than
ever before. Customers are driven to purchase
eco-friendly alternatives to traditional
materials, seeking out textiles that require a
lower volume of water for growth (e.g. hemp as
an alternative to cotton), recycled leather and
textiles, textiles that consume a large amount
of carbon dioxide during their growth (e.g.
bamboo) and vegan alternatives to silk and
leather. Vegan leathers were until recently
made from PVC. However, novelty value and
customers’ desire for reducing plastic
manufacture, have caused plant-based leathers
to become increasingly popular. These can be
made from a wide variety of plant materials,
including pineapples, apples and crop waste.

These alternative materials must still perform
satisfactorily, in applications that cause them
to be subjected to high and fluctuating
stresses, and frequently harsh environmental
