Cuir de Dordogne

Back in 2012, a Centre of Rural Excellence (Pôle d’excellence rurale or PER in French) for the leather industry was set up in the north of the Dordogne, in southwest France, to improve the quality of leather produced and give structure to the sector. Its principal aim was to establish a local supply network of first rate leather, at the demand of CWD, located in Nontron.
