As part of Leatherworld, around 20 exhibitors from South Africa, Pakistan, China, Taiwan and Italy will occupy 500 sq m within the larger show.

A new feature for 2024 – Leather Trend – will bring together Italian manufacturers, in partnership with the Arsutoria School design center.

Leather Trend will enable visitors to discover current trends in the leather markets through the presentation of the various components involved in the manufacture of shoes and bags across four separate podiums. It will be complemented by a series of 20-minute mini-conferences twice a day.

Texworld Apparel Sourcing Paris will also include a Near Sourcing Hub to connect suppliers from some 50 businesses from Portugal, Turkey, Serbia and Morocco and more. The samples in this dedicated area will be linked by QR Code to the show’s B2B digital platform.

Meanwhile, another new feature for 2024 will be fashion accessories as part of the event’s concept stores, including jewellery and bag ranges (with footwear to be added).
