The United States Hide, Skin and Leather Association (USHSLA) is the exclusive representative of the hide and skin industry in the United States. Our members range in size from small family-owned businesses to large corporations. USHSLA participates in two annual trade shows in Asia as well as several other activities as a cooperator through the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Foreign Agriculture Service (FAS). USHSLA has recently updated its USHSLA Packer Hide Standards and is actively serving its members in all aspects of the industry.
