CHINA CELEBRATES 20 YEARS

The All China Leather Exhibition is celebrating its 20th anniversary as China's leading event for the leather industry. The fair boasts an impressive range of leathers for all applications from upholstery to footwear, ALCE showcases the latest innovations from leading brands that serve this sector. With over 23,000 visitors expected next month, most of them are from the main leather manufacturing provinces of China and who can gain access to these innovations from the west.

Layering the event with multiple events, they are hosting several workshops, displays and spaces to push the boundaries of this trade event. The Leather Naturally Zone is powered by Leather Naturally and campaigns to inform designers, creators and consumers about its beauty, quality and versatility. The Leather Trends Space inspires designers and manufacturers with illustrations of colour and materials for Spring/Summer 2019. Designer Workshops have been created for young designers by Footwearists (in the Netherlands), Style ModainPelle Academy (Italy), and Mattori Studio (Italy). In this workshop, designers will be guided to develop their own products and share their experience with peers. A large display will showcase Iconic Sneakers paired with their original leathers paired with a full detail of the types, process and treatments. Several Asian artists have been invited to express themselves on large pieces of leather in the Leather Reborn section. The Technological Innovation Trend Forum illustrates three major themes of the Shanghai Shake-Up conference.
