Lineapelle New York, that will take place on July 17-18 at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea, will show to designers and makers a sneak preview of the latest trends and highlights of the winter collections. More information here.
During the first day of the event (17th July) the Consortium will organize, at the Seminar Room (2nd floor) at 12:30 pm, a technical seminar named “Inherent Vice & the Virtuous Cluster: the case of Tuscan Veg Tan Leather“ that will address the issue how a by-product destined for landfill is transformed into a strong, durable, (and ultimately biodegradable) material of value through a process that generates organic fertilizers and returns purified water to the agricultural patrimony of the territory.
Diane Ellen Becker, creative director of the Consortium’s Craft the Leather workshops and their international network of design institutes will curate the presentation. Her point of view, developed over a career as designer, trend forecaster and educator, considers the challenges to the sustainability of heritage craft in today’s marketplace.
Free entrance at Lineapelle New York but to gain access it is necessary to have the ticket fair. Fill in the form for online registration.
