Twelve Brazilian tanneries participate in this project with the collaboration of two renowned Brazilian fashion designer and artist, Ronaldo Fraga and Heloisa Crocco. Together, they have worked under a common theme, “Writings”, with the objective of developing unique leather articles by bringing in a fraction of each tannery’s personality and translating Brazilian culture onto skin.

Created in 2013 and exhibited in leather related international events in Hong Kong and Milan, “Design na Pele” makes a first exhibition at home, better structured and more mature.

Design na Pele’s launch on Brazilian soil is an opportunity to show our fashion and design professionals as well as our industry and opinion makers, how creative we can actually be. We’re expecting a large and selective public”, says José Fernando Bello, Executive President of CICB (Centre for the Brazilian Tanning Industry).
