Developed by the CICB and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brazil), the Brazilian Leather project has the objective of increasing the participation of the country’s leather sector in markets at home and abroad. Arte da Pele (pavilion 9/stand V12) specialises in exotic hides and will make its international fair debut at Lineapelle, while Courovale By BCM (pavilion 15/stand M26) has traditionally focussed on the U.S. market but is seeking to expand its potential in Europe.

Other exhibiting companies from Brazil include: Curtume Bannach (P9/stand V14), Nova Kaeru (P15/stand A25), Cortume Krumenauer (P11/stand S25-T26), Curtume Natur (P11/stand U15), and Soubach Special Leathers (P11/stand Z16).

Linepelle takes place October 4-6 in Milan.
