Hybrid Fashion is a very widespread trend. In the past, people spoke about fashion for women. Also, fashion companies were managing by men. Nowadays, this has changed a lot. Leather Goods Manufacturers have witnessed this.

People may wear whatever they want since fashion is in the streets more than ever before. These codes (seen in the streets) are used by the fashion industry. Designers take ideas from streets and bring them to their shows. Moreover, they are realising that there is a very strong movement for Unisex Fashion today.

Palomo Spain is a very clear example of all the above. Let me tell you that he produces all his leather peaces in Ubrique. This brand was created by Alejandro Gómez, a Spanish designer born in a small town of Córdoba (Spain). Since he was a child, he was a lover of fashion. He studied in the London College of Fashion in United Kingdom. Palomo Spain released his first collection in Madrid Fashion Week in 2016 at the age of 24. He also presented their collections in cities like Mosco, New York and Paris. The designs of Palomo Spain are always characterized by their transgressive and rule-breaking approach. All the “stereotypes of gender” are trespassed so that he claims “My clothes are love and sex”.

The bags, belts and small leather goods of his collections are made in Ubrique. He believes in the quality and the know-how of the main figure: The Leather Worker. In his lastest campaign (Fall/Winter 18.19), we can see how he uses leather pieces in many of his designs.

How sustainable is Leather Goods Manufacturing? Is leather itself a sustainable product? What do Leather Goods Manufacturers in Ubrique (Spain) do in order to meet the Regulations in this concern?

In the current times, consumers are getting very concerned about the products they are buying. The Fashion industry is more and more worried about sustainability and companies work hard to be more responsible and transparent. In this article we are going to talk briefly about the different actions that “Ubrique” carry out in this matter.

Firstly, all the leather (we use) is a by-product of the food chain. We are not happy with the idea that animals are killed just to get their skin. This is something that has to do with ethics and responsibility too. All leather suppliers (we use) have got the certification and traceability in this concern.

In Ubrique there is also a selective collection of leather leftover. All the leather that cannot be used for a handbag go to Recycling Plants. Once there, the leather is transformed and reused in new products.

The sustainability of the industry is also very closely related to the Labour Conditions, ie. Salaries, Health and Security at the work place, etc. We will also try to develop this topic in a future article.

There are so many ways to keep your things. A leather bag made in Ubrique by experienced Leather Goods Manufacturers can be the best option 😉.

Today, we are going to talk about the different closures that a bag may have. Although keeping our belongings safe is the main fuction of a bag, it is also important if a bag is fashionable, comfortable or light; but let’s focus on some closures…

Using accessories with zips (see example) is the most common way. However, there are also other  possibilities. Bags closed with a flap (see example), with a magnet (see example) or; for the most fashionable people; with a cord as we can see in the model Le cariño from Jacquemus.

Designers are always thinking about new ideas and creative ways to design a bag. In Ubrique, Leather Goods Manufacturers give life and develop all the desires of the designers so that their ideas are translated into Tangible products.

When the general public think about a high quality handbag, they normally think about a leather handbag. However, this is not always the case. Spanish leather goods manufacturers offer many more posibilities than “just” leather.

Leather goods manufacturers in Ubrique are used to work with different materials, like leather, p.v leather or metal; but also they are familiarised with others materials. Innovating and using other materials could be a great opportunity for your business. Fashion is always changing and looking for new shapes, colours and materials such as cork (Example here) or wicker (Example here) are so fashionable nowadays.

Possibilities could be endless. Creativity is the key to develop any project. A good example is the brand Onesixone, an accessories company that creates leather bags where artists paintings are printed on the item. 

Ubrique has always been updated to the new times and to the needs of the customers. This Customer Oriented Approach is one of the key factors of the unprecedented good health the Leather Goods Industry is experimenting nowadays.

Made in Spain leather goods manufacturing is becoming more and more recognised in the Fashion Market. We have also experimented an increasing interest in the use of the “Made in Spain label” as a sales pitch. Quality is not the only reason for this. Spanish leather goods manufacturers are incorporating highly specialised staff in strategic areas such as Customer Care and After Sales Departments.

A very well made product does not seem to be enough for the 21st Century Fashion Industry. In an increasingly competitive scene, Fashion Designers and Brands are looking for a partnership with manufacturers and factories with skills such as:

– Fluent a foreign languages
– Skilled with ICT
– Transparent
– Updated about what’s going on in the Fashion Industry
– Marketing and Communication

The so-called ”industry” is not only appreciating the quality of the leather products but also they are requesting a closer and trustworthy business relationship with their manufacturing partner.

I think you all know that we like challenges and this project has been a real one.This “adventure” started a few months ago. It became a “tangible” piece not long ago and it is now in the market.

Nothing can be compared to the excitement when we saw our customer’s face once the production sample was finished. It was an incredible feeling to see that we managed to make what they had in their minds. As they said… “A dream come true”…

The making of this stunning design was beautifully filmed at our leather goods sampling studio in Ubrique (Spain). We really enjoyed the experience not only for the fun but also for the fact that our customer was able to see and appreciate the passion our team put on every step of the making process of their leather bag.

Thanks to the owners of the design and brand (The SLCTD) , it is a pleasure to be able to share the video below with our followers. Hope you like it. We look forward to your comments….

The answer to the first question is Yes, there are bad leather goods manufacturers… in Spain and in other countries, of course. The answer to the second question is No, quality is only one of the aspects in order to claim whether a leather good manufacturer is good or not.

After much seeing, making, trying and especially as a first person witness, I have found that many Spanish Leather Goods manufacturers have the skills to make good quality leather goods but many others lack other important features that a modern supplier should have.

21st Century citizens demand 21st Century services and the Fashion Industry is not an exception. 21st Century designers and fashion houses look for 21st Century leather goods makers and suppliers. This has to do with being updated about the trends and what the leaders of the market are currently doing. It also has to do with transparency in the relationship with customers and openness to new ideas. Empathy, enthusiasm and willingness are critical features too.

Something to add?… Happy to know

This new video shows the hand sewing of the front pocket of the bag and the strap holders on the sides. Fort he front pocket we have used a natural veg tanned leather as thread, while the strap holders on the sides have been hand sewn using a waxed thread. To be continued…

The more we travel, the clearer we see that leather goods manufacturers in Spain are amongst the top three most reputed countries in leather goods manufacturing. Not long ago, we had the opportunity of visiting London on a business trip. By chance, we met a well-known Paris-based fashion stylist as we were having diner at a restaurant.

The conversation turned into leather goods manufacturing in the high-end fashion industry. It was very nice to listen to him stating that most top fashion houses look into Italy, Spain or France in order to manufacture their leather goods. It’s is very restorative and heart-warming that the hard work has produced results… Anyway, there’s space for improvement…
