Our positive thoughts for the European leather trade were already working out before the Pandemic with the French leather industry steadily growing market share at the expense if an increasingly costly China, the Portuguese leather footwear industry accelerating and some Italian garment makers repatriating their production to ensure brand authenticity.

And the wide international presence in Milan showed there is every reason to show that the rest of the global leather industry is part of it.
