Organised with the support of the Centre for the Brazilian Tanning Industry (CICB), Assintecal, Abit, Tex Brasil, By Brasil Components and Chemicals, and the Brazilian Leather project, 17 tanneries will be displaying bovine, fish, python, goat, and other types of leathers and skins at the upcoming edition of Inspiramais – Hall of Design and Materials Innovation. Chosen to reflect a growing desire for responsible choices in consumption, time, and personal connection, this year’s theme will focus on the word ‘Zen’, which refers to the search for balance; “a mantra for the world’s creatives and consumers in the new millennium”. The event will also host a series of special lectures and fashion shows.
