Leather producer Pittards has added a new abrasion resistance product to its line-up.
 
Pittards Armortan K, with Kevlar, claims all the traditional benefits of the company's premium leather with the added advantage of a tanned-in abrasion resistance.

The technology is based on the integration of a synthetic organic material, which consists of a highly oriented molecular structure within the leather fibre structure. 

The result of this is a high strength, non-brittle leather, with tanned-in abrasion resistance that will last the life of the leather.

The new leather is currently being tested to ensure that it will perform to the highest standards in the most demanding conditions.

Another development is Pittards Cool, which enables dark coloured leather to reflect the sun's rays ensuring the wearer will stay cool, even on the sunniest of days.
