JBS Couros show "Scarface" in Milan

Published:  08 September, 2014

Brazilian tanner, JBS Couros are highlighting several leathers called "Scarface" from its stand at the Lineapelle show in Milan this week. The leathers have been made using Brazilian hides and some have been incorporated in to leather products such as bags.

Fernando Bellese of JBS Couros told ILM: "Although we are looking to improve the quality of raw hides it is not always easy to produce defect free materials. 'Scarface' is intended to show customers that natural hide defects such as scars, insect damage and growth marks etc are a natural part of leather."

JBS Couros will be highlighting a small number of 'Scarface' crust and finished leathers at Lineapelle from September 10-12 with the aim of (re)educating designers and consumers that well made and natural leathers have natural characteristics. The leathers show damage such as brand marks, growth marks and other natural damage.
