This sector, heir to a century-old family tradition, is concentrated in the Sierra de Cádiz. It consists of more than 350 companies, with an annual turnover of 540 million euros and employs more than 2,000 people who are responsible for making many of the articles by hand.
This industry is unique within its sector in Spain and enjoys significant support from the Government Ministry and the ‘Consejerías’ (Regional Ministries) of Innovation and Trade. This support has made possible the construction of a modern ‘Leather Technology Centre of Andalusia’, continuously researching new production techniques.
