The Brazilian Leather Webinar Series is held by the Centre for the Brazilian Tanning Industry (CICB), with the support of the National Wildlife Federation (NWF).

After a very positive dialogue in the first webinar (which was focused on the fashion market and had the participation of Kering, Vert/Veja, Courovale, and Walter Rodrigues/Inspiramais), this edition brings the same presentation and debate format, with questions from the audience. Now, the focus is on the furniture industry, which has leather as an extremely significant raw material for the production of high-quality and durable pieces. This edition of the webinar will address the market demands, successful projects, the introduction of sustainability in the sector, and the novelties brought by the current social dynamic (which has been completely transformed, including the relationship of people with their homes).
