The [Leather LAB ] is a material based project, born from the collaboration between We Crave and the fashion designer ZUH, who was part of our in-residence program over 2016-2017.
The study reaches from aesthetics fascination to symbolic connotations of leather. A material that represents the complex relationship between humans and nature, with the ability to evoke memories.
Concerned about the lack of awareness of waste and pollution generated by the leather-fashion industry, the project challenge pre-established methods to assemble accessories and explores the reuse of the actual leather industry.
The collection is the result of a conversation between leather craft and technology. where design becomes the link to perceive leather as a substance. alive and pure. an open source for unique and poetic reactions.
