n April 4th we had the honour to present our path toward sustainability as part of one of the 8 meetings launched by CLASS Eco hub with an in-depth study path for the student at the Polimoda Institute, internationally recognised for its independent approach and its innovative decision in terms of “fashion education”.
The topics behind the idea of CLASS eco-hub, a reference resource since 2007 for smart innovation in fashion, discussed about intelligent innovation, the new role of the designer and the importance of their communication to new generations, as well as the urgency of transversal cooperation and the development of new business models closely linked to the circular economy. A stimulating, intense and engaging journey, for involving the students on Fashion Design and Design Management, in their future role as protagonists of the fashion industry.
During the session held on the leather tanning techniques, we presented the students our journey within sustainability, our daily commitment, the already completed projects and future ones.
Together with us, also “the Genuine Italian Vegetable Tanned Leather Consortium”, telling the art with which still today vegetable tanning takes place and its peculiarities that still make it one of the most prestigious products for shoe, bag and accessory and furniture.
The event ended with a good session of questions and curiosities stimulated by the two presentations that explained how this production process transforms waste from the food industry in such a valuable product.
