Scottish Leather Group, Transformative Storytelling


Scottish Leather Group are one of Europe’s leading leather producers. A company with an outstanding international reputation, they’ve placed ’sustainability’ at the heart of their industrial policies/practices for the best part of two decades and achieved some spectacular results. They were looking for a creative partner to help transform the way they told their story to many of their stakeholders – existing and prospective customers, managers, staff, suppliers, shareholders and even other members of the leadership team.

THE LOFT worked closely with Scottish Leather Group’s marketing and leadership teams for over three years.

“Production of our Annual Sustainability Report used to be one of the most stressful jobs in the marketing calendar due to its complexity and tight deadline. This year it was stress free, thanks to everybody involved including THE LOFT. It is a marked improvement on earlier versions and the introduction of infographics has transformed this publication.”
