The unique Tannery Museum, housed in the newly-renovated Talampekos-Sinadinos leather factory, opened its doors to the public in 2009. The building dates back to the start of the 20th century. Today, this building is owned by the Aegean University but granted to the local municipality to accommodate the museum.
The hide splitting machine is a piece of equipment found on site but the other exhibits have been donated.
Between 1880-1930, leather production & trading was a growing industry. In Karlovasi, 50 local businesses flourished. Today, only remnants of these structures exist along the coastal road in and around the Riva area.
