Multiple leather products were showcased at the recently concluded Première Vision Leather held in Paris. Technical innovations that provide solutions for improving production and the characteristics of leather items were also on display at the trade show. New textures, techniques, finishing and appearance for leather items were the highlights of this fair.

Cuir de Lagny gilded crocodile leather with sheets of 23-carat gold to achieve new heights of luxury and uniqueness. It also buffed and fed Karung leather with fish oil at the end of the production process to make it supple. Italhide thinned its ostrich leather to 0.6 mm and nourished it with oils and fats with very low specific gravities to achieve a degree of softness and lightness to make it ideal for manufacturing clothing.

Inducol transformed a simple merino lamb shearling into strange astrakhan after dipping it in chemicals and removing the hair in an irregular manner, while Anil Tannery created transparent leather by tanning it using natural chemical products and then drying it under specific conditions. This technical prowess can be applied to sheep or calf leathers too.

Bopell used a new technique of combining laser-perforated and washed sheep leather with a lamé textile to create a new laminated product. Amaltea by Ingropelli inserted sequins between goat leather and a film of snakeskin scales to give the product an enhanced sparkle and shine. Moreover, Alric tannery laminated an ultra-thin dipped showerproof and water-resistant lamb leather onto a silk organza to make an ultra-light, extra-strong and waterproof material ideal for creating a luxury windcheater.

The products displayed at Première Vision Leather also included sheep leather from Giorgio Portolano Pelli that was sprayed with a product during the finishing stages to make it capable of conducting electricity. This product can be used for making gloves, which allow users to take calls in all weathers, unlike the existing leather gloves. Siddiq Leather Works used pressing, polishing and stacking techniques to tighten the grain of cow leather until it became as smooth and lustrous as calf leather. (KD)
