Chile seeks to hook global trendsetters on salmon leather
Financial Times; Apr 29, 2003
With salmon-skin wallets, belts, shoes and handbags already
starting to create a buzz of interest in exclusive European
and Japanese boutiques, a group of Chilean entrepreneurs is
about to launch its model for a large-scale export industry
encompassing everything from clothes and accessories to interior
designs and soft furnishings.
"What we are talking about here is an industry which
could eventually create 150,000 jobs," said Eulogio Evans,
one of the founders of the "Fish" label that will
be used to market the salmon-skin products.
