2008 BASF leather experts have now published Inspirations for Fur, a new catalogue showing the fashionable for double-face sheepskins, as part of their successful Inspirations for Leather series.

The Edition Siberia collection combines, the soft colors of the snow and ice of the Siberian winter with the natural, earthy shades of the tundra in summer. The shades range from pale beige through to full ochre and warm brown. Muted blue evokes icy rivers and streams, and dark red suggests arctic foliage and berries. Grey and green symbolize the bare trees and bushes in winter.

Gerhard Wolf, head of global technical service for leather at BASF, is confident that European design will enjoy great success on the world market: “Our technicians in Spain, Italy and Turkey have an excellent eye for the latest color trends in both the leather and the sheepskin sectors. Our leather and fur experts worked very closely together to produce this double-face sheepskin catalogue”.

As double-face sheepskin expert Gabriel Vizcaino-Caballero, BASF Curtex S.A., Spain pointed out: “There is a trend in the garment industry towards soft, lightweight skins, and we have taken special care to follow this trend. We want to inspire our customers with these new colors, but we have also ensured that these skins can be easily reproduced”.

The catalogue also contains details of the formula used to produce each color. All of the skins in the collection can be used for garments, and they can also be used as decorative trim for shoes and hand-bags.
