MILAN — In the face of weak domestic demand, political turmoil and raw material price fluctuations, embattled high-end Italian leather goods and accessories makers here at the four-day Mipel trade show are holding steady.
Lifted by a vigorous worldwide appetite for luxurious Italian bags, leather goods and accessories outperformed the sector in terms of exports, posting a 12 percent rise in the first five months of 2013, according to AIMPES, Italy’s leather goods association.
