Leather Glove Manufacturers: Inspiration from the 2014 APLF

This year's  Asia Pacific Leather Fair (APLF) wrapped up earlier this week.  With over 1,200 exhibitors and 20,000 visitors, it's a huge showcase for the leather industry, where you see everything  from classic leather selections to emerging trends on display. 

The show is a great place to exchange ideas and information with colleagues in the industry. This year the need to source alternatives due to rising hide prices was a particular topic of discussion.

And of course, we all want to see what's new.  Bright colors, distressed textures, alternatives that offer price advantages --  you can see it all here, under one roof. The APLF is  a great place to look for innovative materials, designs, finishes and colors for the forthcoming seasons.

As they say ... a picture is worth a 1000 words. We are sharing some pictures from the fair,  if you're interested in leather.  Enjoy!

Below:  pictures don't convey the scale. 
So many leather producing countries represented, from Brazil to Turkey to Pakistan to Italy -- like a session at the United Nations.
