In an extraordinarily competitive environment, we in the leather goods manufacturing industry are facing the dilemma of how to compete while maintaining the integrity of our businesses. Will the price of our products and services affect the value provided? The answer is… No. On the other hand, quality is presupposed and already assumed by the buyers that want to have the “Made in Spain” embossed on their leather products. Let’s have a deeper look at the concept of “Value”.

The images  below try to reflect the words and concepts associated to words such as “Quality”, “Price” and “Value”. According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary  “Value” is defined as worth of importance; the adequate or satisfactory return on or recompense for something. Things have value, or are of value, or are valued. “Price” is defined as cost of something bought or sold. However, things that have a price may or may not have Value.

Providing value, or even better, added value for the price that, obviously, our buyers have to pay for our products (or services), is the best position for a business that want to compete globally.

How do you add/provide value to your products and services? At what extent is price so important in a high quality leather product?

We recently got to know about the video below and decided to share it with our followers. The video is about the Museé International d’Horlogerie  in Switzerland  (International Museum of watchmaking). It’s not only that we are passionate about watches and watchmaking but also because such an ambitious project with Montblanc   will serve to keep records of how watches were made in the past and protect the savoir-faire of Swiss watchmakers.

We already wrote an article about the Leather Goods Museum  in Ubrique and published some pictures. You will soon learn more about this museum.

English brand Mulberry was established in Somerset (England) in 1971. The brand was a success from the very first collection and became the first lifestyle British brand. Although most of Mulberry’s leather products are made in their rural Somerset factory, known as The Rookery, many pieces are made in Spain by Andalusian leather goods manufacturers.   The key factors for this success have been the passion for the artisanal work and the selection of the best raw materials, among others.
