Present for the first time at Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags, DMC Akra Europe is a Spanish company of Mexican origin that is part of the DMC group and brings together other companies to achieve vertical integration in production (leather, buckles, distribution). Based in Elche, it has three factories located between Spain and Mexico, specialising in the production of fashion accessories such as belts, backpacks, work bags, wallets, fanny packs.

Created to support fashion brands and work with them, combining brand DNA and seasonal trends, DMC Akra Europe also boasts in its portfolio the exclusive licence for Europe and Turkey for the production and distribution of accessories of the famous American brand Dockers, which includes bags, backpacks, wallets and belts. And it was precisely with Dockers Accessories that the company presented itself at the last June edition of Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags, with the aim of expanding the brand’s presence throughout Europe, and in particular in France, Portugal, Italy and Germany, as well as Turkey.

Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags thus joins other trade fair appointments of reference for the company and appears to be the ideal showcase thanks to its international scope and completeness of offer.

“We are very satisfied with our first participation in the Riva del Garda trade fair,” they say, “because the quality of the customers we met was very high. We received buyers from Belgium, France and Italy, but also from Turkey, especially large wholesale chains of accessories and footwear. And this is very important for us, because it is precisely the shoe and accessory shops that are our main reference customers’.

Protagonist at the fair was the new Dockers Accessories PE 2024 collection, consisting mainly of men’s leather belts and bags, with a natural, handcrafted look, but sustainable items made of recycled leather are also increasingly important and in demand.  The brand is also aiming to expand its product line for female customers.
