Our commitment to product innovation means that Pittards has long been a leader in the elimination of sensitive and environmentally persistent  chemicals, such as Azo dyestuffs. We set the benchmark with its PFC (poly-fluorinated chemicals) free WR100 water resistant technology for the outdoor market ahead of the textile industry.

Longevity of purpose is recognised as being central to creating sustainable products and our technical leathers are engineered with their benefits, such as water resistance, fire retardant and grip enhancement permanently tanned-in requiring no further resources to maintain their durable performance.
