Leatherworld Paris, the international leather trade fair, invests part of the hall 2 and broadens the fairs offer.
Leather and associated materials, especially those used for accessories, or often extensively for clothing, are grouped here all in one area:
“I am more than delighted to welcome this new Leatherworld Paris show into the cluster of trade fairs under the Messe Frankfurt France umbrella. In making leather the overall theme, something totally new for us, we are covering a fresh segment of fashion and accessories. I would like Leatherworld to be viewed as a story of materials: leather, of course, and its versions in synthetic leather for example, but also flexible materials including fake fur and even, with an eye to the future, vegan leather or other sources that are essential for the fashion industry. With an increased focus on finished products, I want to offer our visitors a wide variety of choices for accessorising their collections and provide ranges that retailers are seeking”, explained Michael Scherpe, President of Messe Frankfurt France.
Around fifty exhibitors are expected at this very first show that will cover an overall space of 1500 sqm:
Whether it is a question of tanneries/taweries, small leather goods, gloves or footwear, the foremost supplier to France and Germany remains China, which forms the main body of the products at Leatherworld, particularly for fake fur. Ecopel from Shanghai, the major supplier for fake fur and imitation leather, will also be attending with its French representative. The Pakistani leather industry, with which prime contractors are very familiar, will also be represented by two firms with proven skills. We also note a range of leather goods from Lebanon, demonstrating skilled craftsmanship, in addition to three specialist leather firms from Turkey.
