Family business in its 5th Generation
Richard Hoffmans GmbH & Co. KG, established in 1899, is a privately run company in family ownership, and specialises in the finishing of cowhide leather. The medium-sized German company (from the Breyell district of Nettetal near Viersen on the Lower Rhine, North Rhine-Westphalia) with around 90 employees serves international premium clients, focussing on leather for bags (70%) and leather uppers for shoes (30%). We offer both wet blue and finished qualities of leather. The raw material – the best cattle and calf hides – originates exclusively from Europe.
The Richard Hoffmans leather factory specialises and has found a niche in quality products and luxury goods. Customers include leading fashion houses from France, Italy and the USA.
The company has been gold-rated by the “Leather Working Group”, an international affiliation of brands, chemicals suppliers and manufacturers. The Leather Working Group sets the highest standards for its members.
