MODEUROP, Fashion Pool at DSI team up with Clariant
Dec '09
MODEUROP, the Fashion Pool at DSI (Das Schuhinstitut GmbH) and Clariant global leader in the field of colorants and chemicals for the dyeing, tanning, retanning and finishing of leather, have established an innovative, color forecasting partnership. This cooperation will provide custom-tailored, reliable and consistent color forecast and definition to the footwear leather processing industry. It targets the entire value chain, from tanneries through to shoe manufacturers and retailers.

The cooperation between these two strong partners will bring considerable benefits to the shoe industry and its suppliers. Shoe manufacturers and tanneries can be provided with information on color and trends at an early point in time. In the future all Clariant color charts will include MODEUROP specified colors. Thanks to Clariant's international presence, MODEUROP's color information will now reach the most important tanneries worldwide. Marga Indra-Heide, Fashion Consultant at MODEUROP, comments on the cooperation agreement made in October 2009: “As a result of our partnership with Clariant, MODEUROP colors have been elevated onto the prestigious global stage, adding an international dimension to our business.” Clariant has years of expertise in colorants and chemicals for leather manufacturing. With its products, the company sets the highest standards in physical requirements, trend, ecology and quality.

Clariant's leather chemicals lend the various shoe leather grades the properties that are highly valued by the industry and consumers, whether in regard to abrasion resistance, light fastness, water repellency or tear strength.

Within the scope of its worldwide Global Shoe Concept, Clariant already offers its customers from the shoe leather industry a world-established Fashion Trend Forecast also interpreting – next to color previews – future trends and effects on leather.

“The cooperation with MODEUROP in the field of colors provides real added value for our customers in the shoe leather uppers business, and is a further piece in the overall mosaic of our Global Shoe Concept,” explains Ralph Walter Schneider, Clariant's Head of PM Finishing.
