Three international fashion designers talk about Stahl EasyWhite Tan™
Part 3. Chantsal Batsaikhan of Nekhiii
“We have five factories and 350 employees working with cow, sheep and goat skins. Our company is certified with the Mongolian Eco Mark and, while being modern, Nekhii remains strongly rooted in Mongolian traditions. For a long time, leather production processes were a battle between quality and sustainability.”
Says Chantsal Batsaikhan, manager at Nekhii. Those days are over thanks to the Stahl EasyWhite Tan™ tanning system. Some tanneries are reluctant to change from traditional methods to Stahl EasyWhite Tan™, which is something Chantsal can relate to.
“New things always take time, especially when it comes to new processing that requires retraining of employees. But in this case it isn’t necessary. For me, the most interesting advantage of this tanning system is that it is more sustainable and meets the growing demands for more sustainable leather without compromising on product quality and usability.”
