PREMIUM LEATHER TANNERY PARTNERS WITH MICRO-FRESH®
16th February 2021
We are delighted to announce Micro-Fresh® have partnered with world renowned leather tannery Pittards® to incorporate our technology into TRI PROTEX™ anti-bacterial leather.
Pittards® famously known for the use of leather in baseball and cricket gloves are an award-winning tannery who pride themselves on giving back to the community in Ethiopia, through schools and creating opportunities for disadvantaged young people.
We are proud of our experience with tanneries and beam houses, and this partnership has an emotional connection to us as this is close to our heritage. Micro-Fresh® CEO Byron Dixon OBE is a time served leather chemist, so we fully understand the beauty of leather as a natural, raw material.
Micro-Fresh® is a high-performance technology which offers Pittards® antifungal and more importantly, antibacterial protection throughout all leather layers, which can be incorporated across each step of the process from dyeing to finishing.
Micro-Fresh® has been fully proven to be effective against all grades of leather and our technology does not affect any of the leather properties.
Our journey began as a simple formulation to prevent the growth of mould on leather goods from footwear to furniture and smaller goods such as belts and wallets. This is a great milestone for Micro-Fresh® as our technology was originally invented for leather and after working with leather for over 20 years, we are now in a prestigious, high-performance product associated with an award-winning tannery.
“Pittards has always been known for its innovation and performance leather – working with the team at Micro-Fresh® we discovered a like-minded synergy that has proved invaluable in delivering our new anti-bacterial technology.”
- Reg Hankey, CEO of PITTARDS®
“We are really honoured with this partnership, it’s something sentimental to me because of my time in the leather industry. Pittards® tannery group was one of the first things I learned about, so I am proud for our name MicroFresh® to be associated with such as trusted and worthwhile brand!”
- Byron Dixon OBE, CEO of MICRO-FRESH®
