Sustainability, certifications, raw material and innovation. Lineapelle’s Green Theatre hosted two days of talks and seminars on current matters and best practices of the leather segment. From animal welfare to the new research tools to understand the environmental impact of the chain’s operators. Those that attended Lineapelle (February 22 – 24), the main fair for leather and fashion materials, followed some of these events in person, but missed many due to other obligations. Those that couldn’t be at the fair in Rho, missed them all. Not to worry: The videos of all talks hosted are online.
