Leather As An Agricultural Product: Linking Farming, Food & Design

Breakout Tent

This panel will explore how a new production of leather – made from the hides of animals raised on regenerative farms – is forging innovative connections between agriculture, food, and material culture.
Grady + Robinson is a new enterprise producing leather from the hides of animals raised on Pasture for Life farms in the UK. Their leather offers a new choice: material and products that originate in regenerative practises that improve the welfare of animals, ecosystems, and communities.
This panel will bring together expertise from farming, design, food, and leather production to explore how animals raised for meat can be fully utilised and appreciated.
