Q:

Which country import leather from India?

Hi everyone, I'm a fashion designer based in Italy. I'm looking to source high-quality leather for my upcoming collection. I've heard that India is a major producer and exporter of leather, but I'm not sure which countries actually import it from India. Can anyone tell me which countries import leather from India? I would really appreciate any insights or recommendations. Thank you in advance!

Hi there, I can also contribute to this discussion. I work as a sourcing agent and have worked with several clients who import leather from India. Apart from the countries mentioned in the previous response, I've seen an increase in demand for Indian leather from countries like Vietnam, Bangladesh, and Turkey as well. As with any international trade, it's important to ensure that you work with a trustworthy supplier who can provide you with quality products at a fair price. In addition, check the import regulations and requirements of the country you intend to import to, to avoid any issues with customs. All the best with your sourcing!

Hello everyone, I would like to share my experience importing leather from India to Australia. I own a small leather goods business and I have been importing leather from India for the past couple of years. The quality of the leather is exceptional and the price is very competitive compared to other countries. However, it's important to keep in mind that shipping and handling charges can add up, so it's important to factor that into your price calculations. Additionally, I agree with the previous user that checking certifications before placing an order is a must. If importing large quantities, it might be worth considering hiring a customs broker to ensure that everything is delivered on time and without any issues. Overall, I would highly recommend considering India as one of your leather sourcing options.

Hey everyone, I can add my experience importing leather from India to the US. While India is known for producing quality leather goods, the import process can be tricky. There are several regulations and certifications that need to be met to ensure that the leather is ethically sourced and produced. In particular, the Leather Working Group certification is highly regarded in the industry and helps ensure that the leather is environmentally friendly and produced under good working conditions. So, while importing leather from India can be a great choice, make sure you do your due diligence beforehand to ensure that the process goes smoothly.

Hi there, I can help answer your question as I work in the leather industry. Italy, Brazil, and China are some of the major countries that import leather from India. In fact, India is the second-largest exporter of leather in the world, so you can be assured of the quality of their products. However, do ensure that you work with a reputable supplier or exporter to avoid any issues with quality or reliability. Hope this helps!
