On Thursday 4th July Leather UK member Hayley Hanson met with His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales on her Welsh farm.
The Prince of Wales visited the Brecon Beacons farm on an hour's private visit. The discussion centred around farming and the leather industry, with Hayley explaining her “farm to arm” concept, the high animal welfare standards in UK livestock rearing and the differences between tannages.
They also chatted about the importance of traceability in small-scale leather production, and how her business works to support the local abattoir and wider local community. Hayley demonstrated various leather goods machinery with The Prince of Wales appearing fascinated - it looks as though Hayley received the royal seal of approval!
