India is famous for its leather industries and is a major producer of processed leather and leather goods. The industry is largely privately owned and has an estimated turnover of almost Rs.70 billion annually. The lucrative earnings through exports have made this a growth sector industry today.

Leather is prepared in tanneries from animal hide and skin. Hides of animals such as cows, buffalo, goats, pigs, horses are processed for preparing leather to be used for the manufacture of a variety of leather products. After pre-treatment or curing, which involves removal of unwanted flesh and hair from the skin and curing with salt, the skin is made ready for tanning. Tanning agents cement together the protein fibres in the skin, giving leather its unique flexibility and hard wearing qualities.
