According to the marketing director at the company, Paulo Santana, the investments in the new line will be of US$ 1.8 million and the company expects yearly revenues of US$ 25.8 million with the sales of the new products.

Besides shoes, the Funny line will also have accessories such as backpacks. The official launching for the shops will happen today, January 11, at the Couromoda – International Trade Show for Shoes, Sporting Articles and Leather Artefacts -, which will take place in São Paulo.


As well as a strong presence in the internal market, Azaleia exports to more than 80 countries, including Arab nations, and the exports correspond to 25% of the production.
