Truth around leather and the tanning industry, the oldest industry is known to man, needs to be restored despite the denigration in an instrumental manner that its products and production methods are facing. LEATHER NATURALLY, a Leather industry initiative, informs and inspires the buying public, fashion designers and finished product manufacturers about the use, beauty, versatility and sustainability of leather.
Inspiramais is a starting point for the development of shoes, handbags, accessories and other fashion items. The event hall features not only those materials on designers’ current agendas, but also some of what will be on the creation tables a few seasons into the future. This anticipation of trends comes from Leather Preview, which is presented first hand at Inspiramais. In the show’s next edition, in São Paulo on July 3 and 4, the Preview will showcase all things fashionable in Summer 2019.
Inspiramais is an achievement of the Centre for the Brazilian Tanning Industry (CICB) and the Brazilian Association of Leather, Footwear and Artifacts (Assintecal), with the By Brazil project and the Brazilian Leather project – developed by CICB and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brazil) to encourage leather exports.
