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.

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.

Many fashion designers look at older times and leather goods collections from the past in order to create their own styles and collections. This pretty recurrent source of inspiration focuses not only on the functional part that old items hold but also on the intrinsic beauty of lifetime craftsmanship. Best selling traditional leather goods, like those you can see below, are being reinterpreted and adapted to present times.

Mad hectic Neon leather accessories may be a good example for this. Old functionality and the current trends are united.

We will soon post some new examples of this.

We managed to get several quite old photos of some workshops and manufacturers from Ubrique, which we want to share with our readers. The photos were taken more than 60 years ago, therefore the workshops in the photos have seen some generations of leather workers pass by and, in so doing, they have become icons of the savoir-faire of the leather industry in Andalusia.

 

The older generations of leather workers started to learn the job when they were around 17 years old. At first, they were responsible for very basic tasks and, as they learned the job, they became more implied in the whole manufacturing process.

Just wanted to show some nice products we have come across recently. They are all made using the moulding technique. This manufacturing technique was first used here in Andalusia in order to make small items like coin purses and small leather goods for raw tobacco. Nowadays, this technique is being used to make mobile phones cases, cardholders and i-pad® covers and cases.
