The Princess Royal visited one of the most respected tanners of suede leather in the world in Leeds.

Princess Anne went to Charles F Stead & Co which began operating in its current form in 1904 and remains a family business to this day. The company spent around the first 25 years tanning calf skins, then goat skins and following the Second World War, decided to specialise in suedes.
