Established in the middle of the 19th century, the Richard Tannery was a branch of the larger Richard Glove Factory (Ganterie Richard) with task to manufacture its supply of high quality tanned and dyed leather from raw hides, necessary to make world renowned luxury gloves.
In 1960, anticipating a slow down in the glove business, the company turns its dedication toward new outlets: lambskins for garments, which are becoming fashionable, for bags and shoes.
Since 2006, under the initiative of the current managing director Xavier Richard, the newly rebuilt factory (redesigned to meet high environmental and safety standards) enables higher and more streamlined productivity.

Meanwhile the focus is to continue to meet of all the excellence standards that brought the initial tannery’s fame and high demand with high end customers.The Richard Tannery is one of very few manufacturors in the world to meet these expectations.

Chanel company becomes major shareholder of the company in 2016.
