ViaTalenta Academy and ECAL MAS students complete study trip to Ubrique, Spain
ViaTalenta Academy hosted its first ECAL study-trip to Ubrique, Spain – home of Europe’s leather production. Together with representatives of ViaTalenta Collections and ViaTalenta Foundation, 17 Master’s degree students and their professors explored the fine art of leather making. The trip included visits to luxury leather goods manufacturer, materials’ experts, artisans and the “Museo de la Piel”.
“It was very interesting to see first-hand the process of making a luxury product. It is fascinating to see the many steps, and people, a simple product involves. I was also taken aback by the attention the craftsmen pay to every little detail and their dedication to realise the delicate details of a leather product at a high-quality standard.”
