Apply Science to Natural Materials
Midori Auto Leather truly sees us all as part of this living organism we call Earth and our overriding policy is
to make sensible use of Earth's limited resources by creating only eco-friendly and truly life-enrichening products.
Our mission, "Apply Science to Natural Materials", underpins every product we make,
whether it is genuine leather that has been with us throughout human history,
or natural collagen that is vital in food, medicine, and cosmetics today.
Greeting from Directors
Times have changed since Matsuo Basho, the famous haiku poet, visited Yamagata over three hundred years ago. Yet, still the plentiful hot springs, hearty cuisine, and amiable simplicity of the local people maintain an unwavering charm.
Natural leather brings out a sense of warmth and serenity, and the passage of time adds to its maturity. We believe that, for lovers of leather, growing old with beloved products is a joy and something to look forward to.
Midori Auto Leather Co. Ltd., situated at the foot of Mount Zao in Yamagata prefecture, strives perpetually to reform technology and contribute to the enrichment of people's ways of life. Proudly standing by our motto, "Applying Science to Natural Materials", we have been championing specialized technology in the creation of strikingly original products, along with friendly and attentive Sales and Support teams, the collective aim of which is to ensure the satisfaction of each and every customer.
Thanks to the support of our many clients, we proudly became the world’s third-largest genuine leather automotive seating supplier in 2020.
As we plan future expansion of our business in the North, Central and South American markets, and European markets, Midori Auto Leather continues to uncompromisingly reform technology and ensure customer satisfaction while pursuing our corporate mission. Our aim is to become a "Great Company".
