According to many, leather is the most versatile of all natural materials available. Since the founding of Elmo in 1931, the company has grown to become a leading manufacturer of exclusive leather to the furniture and automotive industries. Elmo is located in Svenljunga, Sweden, with production, product development and sales. Our distinguished leather is sold to over 40 markets worldwide. Since the late 80’s we have been driving the tanning industry towards water based coatings and pioneering discharge water purification in our state of the art biological Water Treatment Plant. At Elmo, we apply a 100% circular manufacturing methodology meaning all our process waste is upcycled, recycled and reused as raw-material for other industries or as energy. Launched in early 2021, Elmo’s industry leading ECO-model facilitates zero process waste, which means that none of our waste ends up in landfill creating an industry unique ‘Zero Waste Leather’ value proposition.
