Sustainable Leather Experience is offered by Schola together with Scuola del Cuoio, which represents the Excellence in the Leathermaking Art.

This Training program gives the opportunity to go through the full process of bag making in an intensive short time and from a new sustainable point of view.

Starting from the concepts of sustainable fashion and circular economy, students will be introduced to several kinds of sustainable materials that are available for the handbag production.

They will be provided with basic skills and techniques needed for the creation of a bag, always using cuts and recovered waste of leather for their projects.

The course is based on a hands-on, practical, old-master approach to learning the artisanal craft of making handbags.

The program is a fully immersive and highly structured 4-week course, centered on the completion of three pre-elected models.

All items will be manufactured in sustainable leather.
