So, the rawhides of animals are obtained from Africa/ Australia/ Norway and France and the production begins at Avanti Group by converting the rawhides of animals to the required state after various stages of the beam house process.
Rawhides are converted to Wetblue/ pickle which is based on the needs of the market.

- Our excellent Product Research and Development Department track the market demands, client needs, Italian latest trends in design, etc. Accordingly, the products are customized to the demand and needs at that point.
- The well focussed capacity of small and medium drums is allocated for research and samplings to check on recent developments that are highly sustainable and biodegradable leathers to go Eco friendly
- Then the leather undergoes various mechanical operations like a setting, vacuum, and hook to dry and goes on with crusting operations like staking, toggling, buffing, and dry milling or tumbling.
- Advanced technology machines with trained human intervention for monitoring and at reaching the crust stage, the quality checks are also done by the professionals.
- Once the crust is ready, it passes to finishing where we make sure the leather matches even with finer requirements from clients like color, hand feel, surface touch, temper, etc.

Avanti Group is very unique in every process they undergo and highly conscious in converting all metals and salts to pure organic matter systematically. Some of our sustainable measures to take care of our environment are here
- Rejected RO water is evaporated to dryness through a multiple-effect evaporator.
- The shaving and trimming waste from leather processing are being collected on a daily basis ( around 500 kgs/ kgs ) . The conversion of shaving and trimming waste in to a natural protein filler takes place in our protein plant which has a capacity of 10,000 Litres with a special process. This natural protein fillers are used back for leather processing and production.
- The solid waste or sludge coming from the primary clarifier filter press is separated and isolated in a secured land space and kept for complete drying. Once dried, they are converted into powder by grinding machine and it is taken through an exclusive process with earthworms and then it is converted into a Final BIOMANURE. Our environmental engineers are working on this and we are in the progress of getting PATENT on this Bio manure.
- The test report of the filter press sludge and the final bio manure are shown here as to how we have minimized the total mineral in the soil. This soil can be freely used for farming and we have planted around 50,000 trees with this bio manure in Avanti premises till now.
- From solar water heater we convert and make around 200,000 liters of hot water a day which is used for leather processing in drum and for finishing process. The hot water required for the tannery are fulfilled without burning the fossil fuel and wood.
- We have also a 1.5 Megawatt of the solar power plant which converts solar energy into green energy. They can accommodate 50% of the electricity for the total plant from this solar power plant.
- Water Conservation ponds : At our premises, we have many places where we save the land source water and rainwater, and the same are used for internal purposes in a systematic way.
- Water conservation is effectively carried out through Rain Water harvesting and the storage ponds are well maintained by a professional crew which will also upscale the ground water level.
Human Cycle & Leather Cycle
Human beings have several stages in life right from birth till it reaches the state of decomposition and goes back to nature. Similarly, Primitive men hunted wild animals which have a by-product of skin that passes through several stages to reach its end finish as leather for the use of living beings and finally goes back to nature like any other living being as biodegradable.
Solid waste and liquid waste are carefully processed and emanated without harming nature. As Avanti is with 100 acres of land with 30,000 square meters of built area amidst the mountain and forest We planted around 150,000 trees inside our premises.
Through this initiative, We are trying to give a nature-based solution and be a part of climate change and obtain a Carbon Credit certification which is an initiative of the United Nations Organization. The plantation includes a variety of trees like mangoes, watermelon, guava, and plantations like Moringa, etc. Which vary from season to season.
