|dc.description.abstract||This study aimed at leather production in Uganda.
Leather allover the world has been used to manufacture a variety of items like belts, bags, lats,
jackets. Coats, dresses, shirts, skirts and many more but to mention a few.
This has been done using a variety of skins and hides from cattle, goats, sheep, fish, snakes,
crocodiles, leopards, lions and many more others that exist in the world. Many innovations have
come up to design any type of leather to suite a set out purpose.
The leather manufactures do not have enough skilled individuals (workers) in the leather field.
This has been a problem in their productions of their leather products to the customers. Because
the customers prefer the imported leather products to the locally made ones in Uganda basically in
Kampala Uganda. Hence there is a need to establish the consumers preference of the imported
leather products to the locally made in Uganda.
The purpose of the study is to find out why consumers prefer the imported leather products.||en_US
