the leather goods market


1.1 Definition and presentation

The "maroquinerie" market is a micro-category of the wider leather clothing market and refers to all leather accessories (e.g. bags, belts, wallets). The distinguishing mark of these fashion items is therefore the material: leather.

The use of leather has ancient origins, in prehistoric times clothing made from the skin of victims of hunting were worn. Undoubtedly in the absence of further processing, the material did not last over time, which is why techniques of drying and preservation of the material were gradually devised.

The small leather goods market in Italy continues to grow, but for years the positive evolution has not been stimulated by domestic demand, which is gradually decreasing, but by exports. Italy is one of the world leaders in the production and processing of leather, a sector that affects a considerable number of companies and employees and that consequently has a significant impact on the GDP of the country. The leather goods segment is expected to be gradually impacted by different purchasing habits (e.g. growing interest in sustainability, "environmentally friendly") and by the proliferation of distribution channels.
