The Leather Research Laboratory is a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to leather testing and research. Custom designed for this purpose, it was commissioned in January 2001 but has been a department of the University of Cincinnati for nearly 80 years.

We offer a wide range of analytical and technical skills developed and perfected during this long history. We provide accurate, comprehensive and authoritative leather testing that is second to none.

The Leather Research Laboratory serves tanneries, leather product manufacturers, retailers, and all other related businesses. Unfortunately, we do not possess the resources to assist private consumers.
