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.
