Offering unmatched design and cutting services, Perrone relies on America’s first laser-guided water-jet cutting system, and digitized cutting to shorten lead times, improve accuracy, improve sustainability initiatives, and reduce costs.


Perrone is committed to using safe and friendly products and providing services in the most environmentally safe and efficient manner through detailed analysis of life cycle assessments. We are also committed to provide products and services that comply with the ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management Standard* which includes emphasis with compliance to regulatory and other requirements.

One initiative that we offer is a Chrome Free Leather. Our system—wet white tanning—refers to leather with a pale cream or white color. This recently developed method of tanning has been increasing in popularity, partially due to contemporary concerns about environmental impacts.

A wide variety of types of leathers can be produced using the wet white system, including automotive and upholstery leathers.
