Leather waste reuse

Greetings all......

A shoe manufacturer generates a large amount of leather waste in its
cutting operations.  The firm has an excellent source reduction program to
maximize raw material utilization using laser measurement and cutting
methods... but trimmings are inevitable and expensive!  Right now they are
land filling the scrap leather.

Has anyone seen or can any of you come up with value-added uses of such
scrap leather?  I have searched P2pays.org and the net and am aware of
scrap reuse  where scrap is defibered, mixed with binding agents, and
applied on leather using an injection molding compound to produce a leather

Any other reuse ideas would be appreciated.
