Why Leather Should Not Be Purely For The Luxury Market

  1. Can the industry be sustainable in the luxury segment only?
  2. Does the leather industry open itself up for justified attacks by being in the luxury market only?
  3. How do we fill the void of non-luxury markets?
  4. What about brands that are not luxury that want to use leather?
  5. What is considered luxury? Where is the cut off point?
