Currently, the company Jacobs GmbH has presented a cow stretch leather as an innovation; up to now, only small skins have been offered as stretch leather. “Now, cuttings are possible that have been unthinkable up to now. ” says Michael Jacobs, the managing director of Jacobs GmbH. He has in mind, for example, a bootleg in one cutting. This is a decisive advantage, above all for brands in the high-quality segment. “We are constantly developing new things, whether these are articles on a basis free from chromium or metal or new fashionable combinations in the finish. But to develop as a world first a cowhide as a stretch leather, gives us a certain sense of pride” enthuses Jacobs. Jacobs has already produced a prototype of a ladies’ boot.
