Dani

This seminar will explain how leather is manufactured and how different finishing techniques can be applied to differentiate various products used by all of us every day.

We will learn about the steps in the production cycle, when this by-product of the food industry is transformed into the noble material used in furniture, interior design, automobiles, shoes and leather accessories, transportation and consumer electronics.

The seminar will also outline the improvements being made in the tanning industry, where there is a new emphasis on sustainability and satisfying our current needs without compromising what is available for future generations. Among these changes, one of the most important is the production of leather with zero Impact on the environment.

Dani Sustainable Leather, founded as a small, family-run tannery in 1950, is now a company with 1,000 employees and US$230 million of revenue, of which 80% comes from exports. Fully 1.5% of company revenue is re-invested in research and innovation. Giulia Spinetta, showroom manager of Dani Asia Hong Kong, will demonstrate how new technologies can make the difference in sustainable leather production, with samples you can both see and touch.

We welcome all AIA members and friends to share this evening with us.
