ASSOPELLETTIERI and YKK® present at Mipel 114 a supply chain project realized with the collaboration of UNIC-Unione Nazionale Industria Conciaria and the Scandicci High School of Leather Goods.

The innovative project wants to show the complex teamwork and the exceptional deployment of professionalism and know-how that lies behind the creation of the bag object.

Through this initiative, visitors will have the opportunity to fully understand how the leather goods chain operates from the conception of the idea to its realization.

The project will be presented at the stand of YKK, positioned inside the Pavilion 10 – FILA C38, and sees the creation of an object-symbol: a clutch bag in leather inspired by the theme of the new edition of Mipel, “Memories Box”, which it will be produced in 200 limited edition copies and destined to become a “Must Have Mipel Bag”.

The entire production process of the bag will be told in an emotional video-documentary, which will show each phase of the journey, from design to the finished product.

The initiative features YKK Italia, the Italian subsidiary of the YKK® Group, world leader in the production of closing accessories for the apparel, leather goods, footwear and furniture sectors, which has made its high-end products available for the occasion.

The Alta Scuola di Pelletteria of Scandicci (FI), whose goal is to safeguard the workforce and the Florentine tradition thanks to the collaboration with local companies able to design effective training courses, has dealt with the product design.

UNIC-Unione Nazionale Industria Conciaria, the most important global association of industrial tanning and historical partner of ASSOPELLETTIERI, has supplied leathers.

Las was responsible for providing suede interior linings.

Montecristo srl, an ASSOPELLETTIERI associate, made the leather clutch bags.
