Jen Yang has been playing with the numbers in his head. The chairman and CEO of Tyche Leather Group, one of the world’s largest suppliers of high-quality leather, is excited about a likely surge in footwear demand in the world market.

“Take China’s economy as an example,” Yang says. “If people there start buying three pairs of shoes instead of one, you can imagine how much leather they would need.”

Tyche Leather boasts excellent quality, being one of the few remaining tanneries in the world that still produce leather from rawhide. Despite its traditional production process, customers can rely on the superiority of the company’s products because the laboratories in each of its tanneries are Shoe and Allied Trade Research Association (SATRA)-certified and have been awarded the highest rating of Gold by the Leather Working Group (LWG) for environmental compliance and performance capabilities. SATRA and LWG are two of the world’s top quality assurance organisations for leather products.

Tyche Leather has been able to share these offerings across the globe through strong sales teams in countries such as the United States, Britain, Spain, China, Vietnam and Indonesia.

“We breathe innovation and creativity into our leather products,” Yang says. “We closely coordinate with brand designers and customise our offerings to transform our clients’ imaginations into reality. We build long-term business relationships on trust and honesty.”

This dedication has earned Tyche Leather the confidence of renowned global brands such as The North Face, Timberland, Clarks, UGG, New Balance, CAT, Merrell, Converse, Sperry, Lacoste and Columbia Sportswear.

“Looking forward, we will be focusing more on Europe, the US and Asia,” Yang says. “We foresee rising demand in these markets to increase our sales by up to 30 per cent in the next three years.”
