Fashion, inspiration, leather, and sustainability will soon converge at a single place: the Inspiramais - Design and Material Innovation Show - January 16th and 17th in São Paulo at the Pro Magno Events Center. Ten tanneries will exhibit their hides that were developed for the 2019_II collections of footwear, handbags, accessories, apparel, and interior design along with a wide range of other materials.
Inspiramais is held by the Brazilian Association of Leather, Footwear, and Artifacts (Assintecal), the Brazilian Textile and Apparel Industry Association (Abit) and the Centre for the Brazilian Tanning Industry (CICB) through their respective projects for encouraging exports - By Brasil Components and Chemicals, Tex Brasil, and Brazilian Leather - developed with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil).
The hides that will be exposed have diverse origins. Small skins (such as those from calves and goats, which are excellent for clothing), bovine hides (preferred for shoes and handbags), and exotic skins (such as python and alligator) will be among the highlights, along with a phenomenal color palette, classic patterns, incredible textures, and pieces that are truly works of art.
The origin of the skins takes you on a trip through Brazil: exhibiting tanneries are from all different regions of the country, comprising their best in São Paulo. Quality and sustainability are these companies’ trademarks. Two examples: Nova Kaeru, which will bring its classic pirarucu fish leather to Inspiramais, which was recently awarded the most innovative material at the luxury fair Première Vision in Paris; and the Rhoma Pelles tannery, a reference in leather for apparel and one of the companies that are part of the Brazilian Leather Sustainability Certification (CSCB).
Other unmissable attractions at Inspiramais are the Preview do Couro showcase (hides developed to anticipate trends), lecture programming, a presentation of an industry manufacturing plant 4.0, and business roundtables.
