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.

There are so many ways to keep your things. A leather bag made in Ubrique by experienced Leather Goods Manufacturers can be the best option 😉.

Today, we are going to talk about the different closures that a bag may have. Although keeping our belongings safe is the main fuction of a bag, it is also important if a bag is fashionable, comfortable or light; but let’s focus on some closures…

Using accessories with zips (see example) is the most common way. However, there are also other  possibilities. Bags closed with a flap (see example), with a magnet (see example) or; for the most fashionable people; with a cord as we can see in the model Le cariño from Jacquemus.

Designers are always thinking about new ideas and creative ways to design a bag. In Ubrique, Leather Goods Manufacturers give life and develop all the desires of the designers so that their ideas are translated into Tangible products.

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.

First-level industries must be surrounded by other auxiliary industries that support the industrial activity and help the leading industry in its everyday work.  The Andalusian leather goods industry boasts more than a hundred companies that accompany leather goods manufacturers in their tasks providing products and services.

Leather suppliers in Ubrique are stocking in their warehouses millions of square feet of all types of leather. The leather comes from first-level European tanneries, mainly based in Spain, Italy and France.

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.
