Attention is paid to the final stage of the tanning process: finishing.
This includes all the chemical and mechanical operations aimed at giving leather the desired look and characteristics.
This surface tratment is an opportunity for craftsmen and technical staff to show their creativity, whilst adding value and quality to Italian products.
The technological advancements now help developing new products with special “effects”, capable of meeting the changing needs of fashion.
Delavé, aged, cracquelé, pearlised, pull up, swollen, scratched, carved, laser-worked leather, etc. are only some effects that will be illustrated by means of videos, pictures and samples, a small collection of which will be handed out to participants.
