Challenges in the leather goods industry

Leather is rich in nutrients such as protein and fat, which is easy to breed mold, while the irregular microporous structure of leather is easy to absorb moisture, thereby promoting the reproduction of mold. In the process of leather processing into products, a large amount of fatliquoring agents, water-based finishing agents, etc. will be used, which are hotbeds for mold growth.
The EU strictly restricts the use of heavy metal chemical additives such as pesticides and preservatives, so that a large number of bacteria and molds in leather products can survive.
For exported leather products, due to the large fluctuations in temperature and humidity during sea transportation, the formation of “container rain” will increase the risk of moisture and mildew on the product, and also increase the risk of mold and mildew deformation of the product packaging box.
Some leather products often have a pungent odor due to their own materials and additives, which affects their final sales.

Here are some of the challenges the leather goods industry often faces:

Moldy product
Surface pigmentation
Pungent smell
Moldy and deformed packaging
Shipping box collapsed
Labels come off


The leather industry mainly uses fungicides or fungicides to solve the problem of mold growth. This method can only solve the problem of mildew and cannot fundamentally solve the problem of dampness. It is recommended to use a desiccant to eliminate the risk of moisture in leather products and fundamentally solve the problem of mold on products. For leather products with heavier odors, our activated carbon deodorant can be used to absorb odors. When exporting leather products, a special desiccant with high moisture absorption should be hung in the shipping container.

Specific solutions can be found in the following products:
