99 Leather Innovations

From Leather Origami Animals to Aged Leather Transformer Bags

— November 22, 2009 — Fashion
Leather is nearly synonymous with fashion. Shoes, jackets and accessories made of leather are as popular today as they ever were. Made from cows and capable of making someone look extremely hot or extremely out of touch, leather is the ultimate truth-revealing device when it comes to attractiveness.

From leather origami animals to aged leather transformer bags, check out these 100 leather innovations.

Implications - After the recent recession, consumers are feeling economically freer and looking to treat themselves with lavish products. For this reason, high-quality products made of leather and other expensive materials are once again sought after. Companies can cater to this luxury-starved target market by designing products with prime materials.
