Leather photo frame makers highlight polished details, mixed materials


Multicolor PU leather variants and blends are raising visual appeal.




  • PU leather still dominates: The input accounts for at least 85 percent of China’s supply and will continue to be the top choice in coming months. This synthetic alternative yields an aesthetic quality similar to genuine leather but costs 20 to 30 percent less. It is also easy to source domestically.
  • Finer craftsmanship: Suppliers are paying greater attention to detail to ensure exposed stitching lines are straight and have an even length. Knots, on the other hand, have to be hidden. In releases with glue, companies prevent the adhesive from exceeding the edges but make sure a sufficient amount is used.
  • Use of combination materials: In boosting product differentiation, makers are mixing different inputs to offer fresh designs. For instance, PVC is blended with PU. Other releases may employ PU leather variants in diverse colors to achieve a look with two or more tones.
  • Price increase: A markup of 10 percent is expected in the next half-year due mainly to rising labor and shipping costs, inflation in China and the yuan’s appreciation. Worker outlay alone has climbed 15 percent since the beginning of 2012.
