The aim is to to enhance the knowledge of Vegetable-Tanned Leather and enrich the technical know-how of designers and makers. Craft The Leather is composed of three phases. The first one foresees a workshop week in Tuscany, in which participants experience a full immersion in the life of the Tuscan Leather District, following the entire productive process with visits to tanneries and other facilities of the Tuscan cluster.
The second one is a creative phase: back home at their school, they receive leathers, offered by associated tanneries, from the Consortium and have to develop and make a three-piece collection of personal accessories, using obviously Tuscan veg-tanned leather.
In the third phase the designers’ collections are exhibited at Lineapelle for the final creative contest. The winner receive a scholarship sponsored by our Consortium.
