We expanded into leather products in 2012 and started by exporting leather bags to Japan. Ananta is determined its mark as an excellent leading leather product manufacturer in Bangladesh.
One of the strengths of Bangladesh is the ready availability of the highest quality full grain natural leather. Ananta has the capability & extensive sourcing network to procure all the desired materials from the Tannery zones. Ananta is also actively involved with leather technicians to develop new leather offerings.
Cotton Canvas & Jute Fabrics are very desirable materials well known in the bag & small leather goods markets.
Ananta has the capability to develop environment friendly natural fibers. It has received numerous awards for high product quality & outstanding production standards.
Ananta has strong sourcing networks in Asia, particularly China to procure different qualities of finished leather & all required accessories. The sourcing capability combined with tax-free material imports for manufacturing leather products allows us to meet our customer’s needs. These materials sourced from other countries widen our capabilities & makes our products very competitive in price.
Ananta Leather Collections Ltd. [ALCL] was established in June 2012 as a natural expansion of Ananta Group of companies into leather goods manufacturing. ALCL was formed to manufacture Bags & Small Leather goods, considering the availability of high quality leather in Bangladesh, the demand for leather products worldwide & the group’s manufacturing experiences.
ANANTA, a well-established name in Bangladesh Apparel Manufacturing, started in 1992 & grew to 8 companies with 15,000 workers, producing 1.5 Million garments per month. Having firmly established its name in the Fashion Industry working with top brands (GAP, H&M, George, Joe Fresh and others), it is now focused on manufacturing leather products, initially bags & SLG. Other product categories in leather are also a part of the future plan.
ALCL (Ananta Leather Collections Ltd.) although a new factory, the management has vast accumulated experience in Leather products manufacturing to support its success. ALCL production team is lead by Mr. Sohail Askar who started his career in Leather products manufacturing as the Managing Director of ‘Spectra Leather’ in 1995 which merged into ‘Picard Bangladesh Ltd’ a Joint venture company with Picard Germany. The experience of producing leather products for international market is now strengthened with the extensive experience and network of Ananta group in the field of management, procurement, exposure, training & compliance issues. Considering the above factors, ALCL is poised for success in the leather products sector.
