    I am looking for quality leather goods that are sourced ethically in Britain. Not only am I searching for quality products but I need to know that the leather is obtained free from cruelty. The source of leather is obviously from an animal skin. How much is known about the animals before slaughter? Much leather especially imported leather has been sourced from equines i.e. horses and donkeys. As a consumer (and I hope a representative of the general public) , I would like to see traceability in the same way as good restaurants have traceability of the meat on their menu.
