In recent years leather products purchase has increased exponentially. The growing demand for fashionable handbags, top quality leather wallets, and other accessories has influenced the overall industry expansion. The leather items market forecasts a record CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 6.2% in 2020-2025. 

Leather items popularity comes from their qualities, such as dustproof, fireproof, crack-proof, and durability, which make them, in most cases, the first choice as material. Under this premise, China is one of the major players in this sector. Especially, the Huadu District near Guangzhou (Guangdong province in the south of China) is a thriving ground for high-quality leather mass production.

In this article, we will introduce you to a new opportunity for your business in Huadu District
