Fun fact: All of Volvo's leather interiors are outfitted with chrome-free leather, and the interior cabins are entirely chrome-free. This doesn't sound like a particularly difficult task, but according to Andreas Andersson of Volvo Cars, chromium is frequently used in the leather-tanning process.
For those with chromium allergies, exposure to this element results in an itchy rash; for that reason, many chromium allergy sufferers simply opt out of leather interiors. In place of chromium, Volvo uses natural or synthetic tanning materials to keep all Volvo interiors entirely chrome-free.
