Make leather more sustainable, more eco friendly.

Essentially, leather is a eco-friendly material. It is the by-product of the beef. By making it leather and using it, I think this is also a respect for the creature eaten by us. And since leather is strong and durable, it will change and show its new face as you using it. People will gradually love their leather products. Thus, leather goods will always be used for a long time, this will help reducing the waste. Let people know more about it will contribute to both leather industry and environment protection, and we consider it as a mission to a company who knows everything about leather like us. We are actively trying to give this correct information to consumers like by conducting lectures, and we also joined JICA's Africa leather industry support program since 2018. Now we have started project to reduce environmental burden from many aspects, in order to gain the LWG certification which is becoming the requirement if you want to do business in global leather market.

Make our quality better and improve our R&D capability,
explore leather's potentials by our hands.

Sanyo is now standing at another crossroad and facing the very start of its third term. After WWII, since the high economic growth period started, we have always been chosen by domestic makers. This achievement, along with veterans' skill, experience and the fresh air brought in by new comers, we now have much stronger creative ability, planning ability and R&D capability. This expands Sanyo's possibility, help us provide better plans and better products to customers. We also have new plan trying to contribute to local revitalization as our wet white leather has a link with history of Himeji. We look at the future of leather industry and our home - Himeji, aim to make another jump.
