At Leather UK, we know that leather lasts a lifetime. To illustrate how leather fits into our everyday lives, we’re gathering stories about treasured leather possessions, from inherited items with special significance to bespoke commissions for brand new pieces.

As borne out in our findings from the “Leather and the Consumer - Research Report", many consumers regularly purchase new or second hand leather goods. Of those who buy or use leather: 67% said it was because leather could be trusted to last and 55% said it was because leather is a high-quality material.

We would love to tell the story of these items and would like you to fill out the following forms about your treasured leather items. Have you looked after a trusty pair of shoes for many years? Is there always a favourite belt you put on, a leather jacket, or do you use an item handed down through generations, such as an old wristwatch or a special piece of luggage?
