SAFLEC (South African Footwear & Leather Export Council) is the recognised body representing and promoting the South African footwear, leather, handbags, belts and allied industries in international markets.
SAFLEC strives to ensure that its members register with the National Bargaining Council of the Leather Industry aligning themselves with the International Labour Organisation rules and regulations.
We facilitate the growth of exports of South African manufactured leather footwear, handbags, belts and other associated products thereby increasing the growth in the number of exporters. A number of emerging companies are being nurtured and supported by outsourcing components to them and exposing them to the international standards and requirements of exports. Through such growth, it is envisaged that the SME’s will grow in leaps and bounds. Our mission is to globalize South African Footwear, Hand Bags and Belts.
