blend of production techniques and productivity, cost saving, added value and quality control aspects must be taken into consideration . In the process of designing, a good designer plays an important role. He must foresee the fashion trend and frequent changes of designs and styles. He must be well versed with CAD/CAM techniques to create newer designs of international standards to suit to the global markets. He must also be aware of colours, color combinations, raw materials, etc. In fact, the designer stands between the market and the manufacturer. The designer designs a few articles reflecting the seasonal fashion trends for displaying in international fairs to attract the potential buyers. The designer also designs products as per the specifications given by the regular customers and sends the drawings with details to sample making section for making products. After making the products, they are sent to the buyers for approval. Once the buyers approve the products, they are sent to pattern making section for cutting patterns for the manufacture of the products. 1. Introduction to pattern making In the manufacture of leather goods, pattern making and pattern cutting are the most important and fundamental in fabricating leather goods. It forms the very core and the beginning. Before making any leather goods, the sizes and geometrical shapes of its parts are first cut in paper. Such patterns, which are cut in paper, are called paper patterns . The paper patterns are stuck on thick millboard or a white board, using adhesive and then cut into cardboard patterns. By using the cardboard patterns, leathers, linings, foam and reinforcements needed for making leather goods are cut.

quality control. In leather goods making, two kinds of patterns are used. They are making patterns and cutting patterns .

These patterns are called cutting patterns and are largely used for making fold edged or turn over- edged articles. Both the making patterns and cutting patterns are used for making stitch and turn-edged articles. To make less number of products, cardboard patterns are used for cutting components. To make more number of products, aluminum or galvanized metal patterns are used for cutting components. To manufacture in bulk, the cardboard patterns of the product are converted into clicking dies and the components are cut in the h/ydraulic clicking press.
