Low carbon leather

Our Leather

Our hides are locally sourced, direct from abattoirs for quality assurance, traceability and animal welfare assurance.

Access to the finest raw material helps Muirhead provide customers with consistently high quality Scottish leather.

Our leathers are tested and certified to meet today's most challenging standards of performance and safety. 

Being a vertically integrated leather manufacturer, we have full control over hide selection and can offer our customers the highest quality graded hides therefore giving our customers a greater yield.

We believe that making leather should not cost the earth.

Muirhead has the lowest carbon footprint of any leather maker in the world and the only one to carry the Low Carbon Leather logo. 


Parent company of Muirhead, Scottish Leather Group, designed and built a self-funded £6 million Thermal Energy Plant which converts process waste into energy. Watch the video below to see how the innovative Thermal Energy Plant operates.
