Fears over the future of the French footwear manufacturing sector may be calmed to some extent by the most recent set of industry figures, writes Leatherbiz.
National leather sector representative body the Conseil National du Cuir has reported full-year 2022 revenues for French footwear of €651 million, an increase of 10% compared to the year before.
It said the French footwear industry now comprises 90 companies, with a combined total workforce of 3,700 people.
Together, they produced 15.2 million pairs of footwear last year, an increase of 3%.
