Hub represents East African footwear manufacturers at popular New York trade show

Published on June 07, 2018

The Hub is currently in New York at the Fashion Footwear Association’s (FFANY) “Market Week” to showcase East Africa as a footwear sourcing destination. Thousands of retail buyers visit the FFANY trade show to discover new footwear collections and make sourcing decisions.


The Hub is representing 10 footwear companies from East Africa, all of whom provided samples from their new collections. Most of the companies hail from Kenya and Ethiopia – both countries have invested heavily in their leather sector and in their production capabilities. They are also both African Growth Opportunity Act (AGOA) eligible, which offers attractive duty-savings to U.S. buyers.
