My visit on the MATERIALENBEURS 2014 (A Materials Fair), which took place in Utrecht on Saturday, January 11, 2014 – was short but full of impressions.
For the fist time the association FeetBag organized it in cooperation with the BvK which manifested with few fabric stands.
The fair was full of various wholesalers in leather, supplies and equipment to make shoes, bags and leather fashion accessories. It was amazing!
It is rally THE MUST for those who make all kind of bags. So many different supplies – you are so inspiring while walking along all stands.
Additionally to the fair there were a short workshop organised showing how to make shoes/bags. But there was as well a lot of leather which could be used to sew a jacket, skirt or other garment (or pieces of it).
I was only for about one hour – I did not buy anything – but now I can prepare myself for the next year. Next year I will take a little more time and I will prepare a list what I am interested in.
