The processing of raw animal skin into leather is a complex process which requires know-how and top-quality raw material. Today, most tanning companies are in the hands of big luxury concerns, such as Hèrmes or Prada. Only a handful of smaller players are able to compete against the giants of the industry in the long run. One of them is Weinberger Leder GmbH, based in Weinheim, Germany. Thanks to the profound know-how of the owners, Uwe Holubeck and Gerd Knapp, and their team, the company ranks among the top names in box calf leather.
