Correct storage of leather
Considering the importance of careful leather storage and the problems that can arise from poor warehouse conditions.
Leather is normally the most expensive component used in a pair of shoes. Consequently, the leather room is an area of the factory where a very high value of stock is held. Depending on the size of the factory, this could run into hundreds of thousands of dollars or pounds. Correct leather storage is essential if the shoemaker is to protect his or her investment and minimise leather problems during production.
