Part of Scan-Hide
Scan-Hide is the last remaining tannery in Denmark. It's located on the south of Funen and dates back to the early 1990s, when a number of Danish abattoirs joined forces and set up their own facility for processing hides.
For decades, Funen has been home to a large part of the Danish furniture production. Local suppliers to this industry had grown around it, among them smaller tanneries that supplied leather for upholstery.
As the only Danish tannery left, Scan-Hide takes great pride in keeping this profession alive, by ensuring that craftsmanship is passed on from the current experts to the next generation.
