Craft the Leather on the road
Since 2014 the Genuine Italian Vegetable-Tanned Leather Consortium organises Craft the Leather on the Road. It’s an itinerant training project that is obtaining a very positive outcome abroad and has already been presented in Europe, the United States, Japan and South Korea.
This didactic program aims to enrich the technical know-how of designer/makers of the international fashion system by proposing seminars and workshops focused on the vegetable tanning process and the veg-tanned leather technical specs.
The project’s tutor is Mrs Diane Ellen Becker.
Creative consultant, Diane Ellen Becker has worked in the all aspects of the specialty leather business from visual merchandiser and buyer to designer of high end leather goods and shoes, specializing in international trend research and creative brand identity, consultation and formation, both to fashion/design professionals and educational institutes.
