Hong Kong Hide & Leather Companies – initial notes about this industry
The Hong Kong Hide & Leather Traders’ Association Ltd website suggests there are around 60 Hong Kong companies currently involved in this industry.
We have two articles concerning this trade both written by York Lo.
* Tung Mow Hides & Leather Factory(同茂皮廠) – pioneer of the HK leather industry
* Kwong Fat Yuen Hong (廣發源行) – the 150 year old King of Leather
Plus a little about the reasonably well known though defunct Tannery in Yung Shue Wan on Lamma Island which is now a rather swish housing complex.
All these articles are linked at the end of this article.
I have added slaughterhouse/abattoir articles for good measure.
Below are the companies listed by the Association. As information comes in about these I will add to this article. Plus add defunct companies as their names surface. Unless indicated otherwise all articles linked below are from our website.
We are, naturally interested in any Hong Kong companies in the hide and leather trade which are no longer operating,
I will also link posted articles about companies in this field which are no longer operating.
