Muirhead - The lowest carbon footprint of any leather maker in the world
Andrew Muirhead & Son has been at the forefront of leather manufacturing since 1840. Over the last 175 years, Muirhead has supplied leather for many high profile projects including the Houses of Parliament, Burj Al Arab and the Boeing 307 Stratoliner.
Today Muirhead is the UK's only upholstery leather manufacturer and the market leader to the global aviation industry. Muirhead customers have come to expect quality and performance, whatever the application.
Muirhead leathers are tested and certified to meet the most exacting standards of performance and safety within all of their key market sectors.
Concern for the environment is integral and fundamental to Muirhead. Alongside their sister company, Bridge of Weir Leather, they operate the industry's only Thermal Energy Plant where process waste is recycled into energy for use in the manufacturing process. This substantial investment gives Muirhead the lowest carbon footprint of any leather maker in the world and the only one to carry the Low Carbon Leather logo.
