In the latest episode of ILM’s podcast, View from the Top, Deputy Editor Tom Hogarth brings you three articles that, together, present an image of the challenging global environment leather finds itself in today.


These three articles, all available on the ILM website, look at the outcome of the recent APLF Dubai show and future venue possibilities, the need for leather industry professionals to pay attention to current events and why leather is being targeted by alternative biomaterials for market share.

About APLF

We bring leather, material and fashion businesses together: an opportunity to meet and greet face to face. We bring them from all parts of the world so that they can find fresh partners, discover new customers or suppliers and keep ahead of industry developments.


We organise a number of trade exhibitions which focus on fashion and lifestyle: sectors that are constantly in flux, so visitors and exhibitors alike need to be constantly aware both of the changes around them and those forecast for coming seasons.
