International Women's Day is a day of celebration and recognition of the progress women have made on all fronts of life, the workforce in particular. While women have made significant strides in various industries, for years, the leather industry has been dominated by men, leaving women underrepresented and underserved.
However, over the past few years, there have been some positive developments in this sphere and the leather industry has seen a significant rise in female participation, especially in areas of design, production, and sales. Despite these advancements, however, the challenges remain for women still facing discrimination on multiple fronts, and for this to be addressed, there needs to be a concerted effort to promote diversity and inclusion in the leather industry.
How do we go about doing this? By creating a more welcoming and supportive environment for the female perspective. This is where, Nappa Dori steps in to aid the process of breaking the glass ceiling and revolutionizing the industry by designing products that cater to the unique needs and wants of women, by women.
