FUSING CRAFTSMANSHIP WITH INNOVATION

  • What is APLF Materials+?

    A sector to fuse craftsmanship with innovation, APLF Materials+ is the platform to source synthetics, performance materials and components for use in fashion-forward footwear, bags, garments and fashion accessories, which cater either to the “fast-fashion” trend in the sports-leaning, ready-to-wear markets or to the more high-end demands of the “bespoke” market.
