The LAGOS LEATHER FAIR is a private initiative born out of a need to redress the current situation, specifically within the leather industry. LLF was pioneered in 2017 by FemiHandbags, a brand of My World of Bags, a design and manufacturing company. It is fundamentally a business project designed to unlock the huge potential of the leather industry and to empower the players along the leather value chain. Its ultimate goal is to deliberate on the challenges facing the industry, start a discourse, tell our stories and offer innovative solutions.
It provides exposure and a platform for some of Nigeria’s best leather designers of footwear, handbags, apparel, jewellery and much more, to showcase their work. It also facilitates contact between raw materials suppliers (tanners), producers of finished leather goods, and retailers. It provides a learning opportunity for SMEs, and enables them develop necessary business links.
