Pakistan is one of the most prominent and potential countries which is recognized to be a hub for high quality Leather and Leather Products and there are about 800 tanneries in the country actively engaged in producing best quality finished leather, the maximum quality thereof is exported to international market and the remaining caters to the domestic need. This most dynamic sector is represented by the Pakistan Tanners Association, a renowned trade body duly licenced by the Ministry of Commerce under Trade Organizations Ordinance/Rules 2007, registered with the Security & Exchange Commission of Pakistan and a bonafide member of the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce & Industry.
