Who are we?

Conseil National du Cuir

Created in 1948, the Conseil National du Cuir is the French interprofessional union of all the professional organisations involved in the production and processing of hides and the manufacture and distribution of items made with leather. The Conseil National du Conseil National works in the general interest of the French leather industry.

Conseil National du Cuir

Twenty federations are members of the Conseil National du Cuir, each representing a specific activity within the sector: production (breeding, trading of leathers and raw hides), processing raw materials (tannery and chemical products), manufacturing (leather goods, footwear, gloves and other crafts such as orthopaedic shoemaking and components) and distribution (imports, wholesale and retail distribution).

The member federations represent a wide variety of companies from large businesses to SMEs and artisans, all of which boast exceptional savoir-faire and a high-quality approach.

The majority of these companies are located in regions with a historical link to the French leather industry.

The CONSEIL NATIONAL DU CUIR is directly associated with SIC SA. This company organised the LE CUIR A PARIS show from 2001 to 2014 and is a partner of APLF Ltd. which manages the shows in Hong Kong and Shanghai.
