On my last trip to China, I had dinner with a leather supplier who represents many tanneries.

Our discussion turned to leather prices, which continue to rise.

While ultra premium brands can absorb higher material prices, that’s not the case for most brands we work with.

Here are some thoughts about how to maintain glove quality and margins, as we plan for another year of continued high leather prices in 2015.

Ever wonder how glove designers stay ahead of the curve, and incorporate design trends to update the brands and designs that have been out for a while?

Our glove company has to do that for our own brand gloves (which are pretty classic style wise, but get functional updates)

...  and for other glove brands that we manufacture for (some of which are more progressive fashion-wise).  

Here is an inside look of what we watch to stay on trend.
