“All these entities produce excellent exportable leather products like gent's wallets, notecases, credit card holders, ladies purses, card holders, bags – fashionable ladies handbags, Leather / canvas bags, gents folio, other items like laptop cases, file covers, folders, organiser, travel items, flexie tote bags, laptop case or laptop folio, soft luggage and other leather goods,” informed Mr Kumar.

Online business networking along with physical handholding - connecting with buyers throughout the world through email and tele calling is what is expected from this intervention, Mr Kumar stated.

Kolkata Leather Cluster entities are enthused with the fact that they never got such a support in the past and duly acknowledged EDI Kolkata Office for the support that they got through this online as well as off line intervention. They now look forward to expand and enhance their businesses and explore virgin territories exploring the buyer database of Fibre2fashion.com.
