The first edition of Materia, a fair dedicated to leather design, will take place on November 5th and 6th at Grand Hotel du Boulevard in Bucharest.

Over 60 designers using leather as their main work material will come at the event. Among them are: Otilia Flonta, Mihaela Glăvan, Carter, Atribut, Yvy Bags, Laura Olaru, Bogdan Deliu, Paul Christian, Novak Prive, Oana Lupaș, Maestoso, Snob and Andra Andreescu.

The idea of the fair belongs to visual artist Dan Pierșinaru, founder of contemporary jewelry fair Autor, which is a supporter of the new event. “I felt the need for a platform for designers in this area. Creative work with leather is being made in Romania, there is a creative discourse that deserves all of our attention,” Dan Pierșinaru explains.

As such, the creative concept dominates among the items that will go on display at Materia.

The fair can be visited between 11:00 and 20:00. An entrance ticket costs RON 10.
