Italy - Germany
Published:  07 January, 2015

Lineapelle, the international show for leather and components for footwear and leather goods, has chosen the GDS show in Düsseldorf in early February to communicate through a series of seminars the sustainability and fashion aspects of Italian made leather.

A number seminars organised by Lineapelle will be held during the first day of GDS (February 4, Congress Center Düsseldorf, Room 001), which will highlight companies that Lineapelle represents in terms of environmental sustainability.

In particular the seminars will focus on:

  • Environment (emissions control, wastewater, odour, wastes)
  • Safety (chemical and mechanical risk, accidents, professional diseases)
  • Consumer safety (chemical legislation, analytical methods, specifications according to the intended uses)
  • Animal welfare and raw material traceability
  • Certifications under accredited international (ISO) rules and verified by ICEC (The Italian certification body specialised in leather)

Also, during the seminars in Düsseldorf a preview of the Spring-Summer 2016 fashion tendencies will be shown.

The next edition of the Lineapelle fair will be held in Milan from February 25-27, and this year will include several brands trend catwalks. The exhibition organisers (UNIC) are underlining the shows role as a source for fashion.
