The Trend Selection took place Central St Martins College of Art & Design – Innovation Centre in central London. It was the second event following a successful inauguration in the spring of 2009. ‘We have seen a lot of interest in our stingray and python printed calfskins leathers, particularly in orange’, Laura Pasquinelli, sales manager, Conceria Samantha, told Leather International. ‘The trend selection allows us to introduced our products directly to British designers and buyers as they are often difficult to meet. We also use the event to see existing customers’, she added. Conceria Samantha from Ponte a Egola (Pisa) produce high quality calfskin leathers for footwear and leathergoods. Their full collection will be on show at the forthcoming Lineapelle and Le Cuir A Paris shows.

The majority of the tanners present highlighted high-end footwear, leathergoods and garment leathers.
