In conclusion of Craft The Leather 2016, it is time to determine who will win the award. Particpants, after living a week in Tuscany in the world of vegetable-tanned leather and of the Leather District, dedicated themselves to the creation of a three piece collection of personal accessories exclusively using Vegetable Tanned Leather in Tuscany. Ideas, creativity and much more in these prototypes made by a group of talented young designers from the most prestigious and innovative international fashion and design institutes.
Now, as planned, the third phase of Craft The Leather 2016, 5th international creative competition, foresees a final act: the designers’ collections are exhibited in a designated area at Lineapelle, which is being held today and up until 23rd February at Fiera Milano Rho.
