Lineapelle busy after slow start14 October 2009
The leading European exhibition for the tanning industry, Lineapelle has been busy after a quiet start on October 13. The trend selection area located at the centre of the show located in the outskirts of the Italian town of Bologna. A total of 788 Italian and 347 foreign exhibitors which includes 577 tanneries is highlighting leathers for the autumn/winter 2010/11 season.
As usual the most eye-catching stands were some of the major Italian tanneries such as Conceria Dolmen from Santa Croce and Conceria Priante which featured some spectacular leather sculptures. Aisles were much busier on day two as many designers and stylists choose the second day of the show to turn up, much to the relief of many exhibitors who witnessed a quiet opening day.
