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.
