Once again Arts & Tannery comes from Italy to New York City to present the latest trends in leathers and accessories. Organized by the Italian Leather System Consortium in partnership with the Italian Trade Commission, the event will take place at the Midtown Loft and Terrace on September 5th and 6th.
The exhibitors at Arts & Tannery, all members of the Italian Leather System Consortium, will present their Fall/Winter collections for 2013/2014 specifically selected for the American market. The visitors will have the chance to view sample materials and products and will be invited to attend a trend presentation curated by ILSC that will offer a preview of the colors, motives, textures and themes inspiring next season’s fashion.

Italian leather and components are more popular than ever in America: Italy confirmed itself the primary supplier of leathers to the US, with a market share of 22.85% in the first semester of 2012.
Italian Trade Commissioner Aniello Musella is excited with the leather sector’s recovery: “Made in Italy assures high quality and design. Tradition, workmanship and great experience make Italian leather different from any other worldwide. Italy is one of the leading countries in the industry, and the Italian Leather System Consortium always features the very best of Italian leathers and components.”
Aldo Donati, President of the Italian Leather System Consortium, is also excited about the upcoming edition of Arts and Tannery, which he defines “a rendezvous not to be missed.”Donati adds: “Arts and Tannery greatly celebrates the quality of the leatherworking tradition and it represents a special occasion to strengthen the relationship between the American designers and the Italian market.”
