The route of the skin

Animal skin is widely used as raw material for manufacture of clothing and many other items. Greece is currently exporting animal skin to Turkey, Italy and Spain. Some amount of it, ends up in the northern countries like Russia. Before the skin is ready for export, it must be processed. The specific and strictly defined procedures, combined with the unfriendly environment, makes this job especially hard.
