Leather Grading Training

SATRA’s method of measuring the usability of leather is the industry standard for ensuring realistic and consistent grading results.

SATRA’s five-point grading system

We provide comprehensive training in the SATRA five-point grading system, a unique method which has evolved through continuous development of our leather assessment techniques.

In addition, we will inspect your working environment to ensure it is suitable. We will teach you about area discrepancies and show you how to record the data in a standard form using the paperwork specifications provided.

Our training is specifically tailored to your company’s (or brand’s) own quality standards. Following the training, you will be able to fully exploit SATRASumm’s strengths by providing the software with accurate material information, leading to accurate allowances.

The Main Benefits

SATRA’s ‘one language’ approach will ensure realistic and consistent grades. It will improve understanding and communication between you and the tanneries, since agreed quality standards can now be defined and measured. Disputes about leather quality with the tanneries and cutters will be reduced, and monitoring of leather usability will be simplified.

Supplied with the training are a leather assessment manual, which includes standard forms, and measuring grids and standard perspex shapes for use in grading.
