Fung Shing Leatherware Co Ltd's leather products include document folders, memo boxes, penholders and calendar pads

Leather and leather-look accessories have long graced the world's most successful businesses and home offices. From photo frames to mouse pads, desk mats to pen-holders, the look of leather - whether classic or contemporary in design - remains in constant demand in both the retail and premiums sectors.

One company that knows the value of leather is 13-year-old Fung Shing Leatherware Co Ltd, which manufactures leather and synthetic leather products and has just introduced a desktop product line.

"Our range includes document folders, memo boxes, pen- holders and calendar pads," explains marketing executive Ivy Wong. "We produce these in leather and leather-look PVC, generally in black, brown, burgundy and navy."

The company sources cow and pig leather from Korea, the US, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, and PVC from Taiwan. "We can combine real and synthetic leather within the same product, according to our customers' wishes," adds Wong.

Fung Shing's calendar pad (model M-880) costs about US$2.83 FOB Hong Kong in PVC or US$10 in real leather, while its imitation velvet-lined memo box (model M-876) costs US$0.90 in PVC or US$2 in leather.

The company, which manufactures at a 6,000-square-metre, 300-worker plant in Guangzhou on the Chinese mainland, accepts minimum orders of about 1,000 per style delivered in 30-50 days.

"We are frame people," declares the website of specialist photo frame manufacturer and exporter A.C.L. Industries, which manufactures in excess of 12 million frames per annum at its wholly-owned 27,500-square-foot mainland factory in Dongguan.

"We are certainly well known for our quality," claims general manager Clement Woo. "A number of our patented designs have been remarkably successful."

He says A.C.L. enjoys strong demand for its leather-look frames from retailers and importers in the US and Europe. "Most of our frames are leather-look PVC," Woo explains. "We also design and produce products in real leather."

The company is able to turn around leather-look or leather frame samples in one week - though if a design needs new tooling this could take up to two weeks.

Its leather photo cube (model LT-008-3535X5BR) costs US$2.50 FOB Yantian, while its classic leather-look frame with contrasting stitching is available in a number of sizes.

A.C.L., which requires a minimum order of 500-1,000 pieces per size and colour and delivers within 45-60 days, is currently having its ISO 9000 application processed.

Europe is an equally important market for Wonder Best Group Co Ltd, which has been manufacturing leather and synthetic leather items for more than 10 years. "Our focus is providing our mainly European client base with a constantly updated range of classic styles," says director assistant Sharon Chau.

The company, which has been ISO 9000-certified since 2001, has its marketing base in Hong Kong and its 23,000-square-metre factory in Dongguan. "Quality control is a priority," adds Chau.

The company produces a variety of desktop items in leather imported from Brazil and PVC sourced from Taiwan on an OEM basis and for its own Pirago brand name.

Its range includes desk mats, paper trays, memo trays, memo pouches and pen-holders, available in minimum orders of 500 pieces delivered about 30 days following order confirmation.

FOB Hong Kong prices range from the US$5.75 desk mat (model DM-0001) in mixed leather and synthetic leather or US$3.80 in synthetic leather, to the US$10 A4 paper tray (model A4-PT) in real leather, or US$2.50 in synthetic leather.

A-Leader Luggage Mfg Co Ltd has developed a variety of different markets since it began operations in 1989, including Europe, Japan, Canada and the US. "We are proud of our reputation as a reliable and professional manufacturer of leather goods," says account clerk Irene Lai.

The company hand crafts an extensive range of real leather products including leather desk organisers, watch cases and men's boxes in a variety of colours and finishes.

"We use top quality leather from Italy, Korea and Taiwan which ensures that our products are durable, practical and functional," adds Lai. "We also design and manufacture on an OEM basis."

The company's 3,000-square-metre, 300-worker plant in Dongguan produces various minimum order sizes according to design, and delivers within 3-4 weeks of order confirmation.

There's a virtually insatiable demand for quality items for home and office, so whether it is real or faux leather, Hong Kong products are sure to be found in the very best locations worldwide.
