Shoe manufacturers asked to create a new state standard

Footwear manufacturers from St. Petersburg suggested that the authorities introduce a state standard for pressed leather shoes in Russia, which will enable honest manufacturers to deal with consumer goods, and customers not to be deceived. Shoes and leather goods made of pressed leather are listed as leather on documents, but the material of the products is made from scraps of real leather, grinding it into powder and adding polymers and resins, which makes it at least three times cheaper than real. In today's standards, there are only three types of materials for leather shoes: genuine leather, artificial and synthetic. Synthetic leather shoes are in the lowest price range, according to GOST, artificial leather is considered to be a cotton fabric with nitrocellulose or vinyl coating, and shoes made from pressed raw materials are often difficult to distinguish from natural ones, which is used by unscrupulous manufacturers. St. Petersburg shoe-makers have no goals to ban pressed leather, but there is hope that with the introduction of GOST it will be possible to track the quality of raw materials. The need to introduce a new standard was agreed at the All-Russian Leather Association and Rospotrebnadzor, and officials in Smolny began to develop a text of the legislative initiative.
