In an previous post we talked about ‘Sustainability in Leather Goods Industry in Ubrique’. How Ubrique carry out different actions in this matter. One of the most important facts is the Labour Conditions that Leather Goods Manufacturer apply. Therefore, we are going to develop this controvesial topic in fashion nowadays.

Today, people are very aware of the fact that everyone must work in good Labour Conditions. When people buy something, especially in the fashion industry, they think how and in what conditions this piece was made. Has this item been made with appropriate labour conditions? Is this design authentic? Is it handcrafted?

Many people think that The Fashion Industry lack mechanism that shows transparency in this matter. This must be solved somehow. We must to work together to get a sustainable fashion. There is an organization that is worried about this concern: The Ethical Fashion Forum. This platform was born in 2006 to develop a collaborative movement which would transform social and environmental standards in the fashion industry. They try to “support and promote sustainable practices; facilitate collaboration; raise awareness; and provide the tools and resources needed to reduce poverty and reduce environmental damage”.

With regards the industry in Ubrique, the main figure of this industry is, without a doubt, the Leather Worker. Companys know the value of this figure. Therefore, they are fully aware of the compliance of all the labor rights; such as salary, working hours and extra hours as well as family conciliation.

All the above is highly appreciated by High End and Luxury Fashion Houses. What’s more, these Fashion Brands not only demand that work conditions are respected according to the legislation of each country, but also they monitor that these conditions can be improved every year. We believe that the respect and appreciation of the Leather Worker and their work conditions is a MUST in the Leather Goods Manufacturing Industry globally.

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.

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.

Did you know that a wallet could be composed of more than 50 different small pieces? Each of the pieces must be cut with the greatest precision in order to get the highest quality. Leather goods manufacturers in Ubrique (Andalusia) are using three main cutting methods.

Cardboard-Moulds-for-Hand-Cutting-Leather

  • · Hand cut: Only the most skilful cutters are able to cut the leather by hand. In order to do this, a cardboard pattern and a sharp blade are used. The cutter must also be able to select the proper areas of the leather for each part of the leather item.

  • · Die Cutting (Press Machine): When there is a considerable amount of items to be produced, a metal cutting piece is made for each piece of which the leather item is composed. A press machine is used to cut the leather

  • · Automatic cutting system (CAD/CAM Technology) : Although the investment in this kind of technology is very high, automatic-cutting system provide manufacturers with a multifunctional tool for the current times. CAD/CAM technology is really helping manufacturers to meet the needs and demands of the market since it helps you develop critical processes in the manufacturing of a leather item such as pattern making, easy pattern amendment and prototype & sample making. Automatic cutting systems are ideal for small batch production.
