Workers at a drying station. A large heater/ dryer is used to stretch and dry recently washed and dyed sheets of leather. These sheets are pinned onto the nets as they move through the 'toaster' like drying machines. Skins are then air dried for 2-3 days depending of the temperature and humidity inside the factory and can take up to 1 week in particularily cold or wet weather.
