Zerow strongly believes that unity is strength.
For this reason we started collaborating with AS.P.R.I.
Associazione Pelle Recuperata Italiana, a project that shares with us values such as respect for the environment and for people, the enhancement and creative reuse of discarded raw materials.
This synergy born in the Florentine territory is now taking shape in a common project that was created to overcome the problem of waste in leather goods, while promoting and spreading the culture of the circular economy.
The enhancement of waste that Zerow offers through the platform is only possible thanks to the know-how that AS.PRI possesses, the pride of years of experience, in regards to the deep knowledge of the raw material, the artisan tradition and the #handmade manufacturing processes that a precious material such as leather still needs today.
In a circular economy perspective, no piece of leather is wasted, respecting the environment and the latter. Every little movement is dictated by the great passion for raw materials that lives within the association. This reflects the values of both AS.P.R.I and us at Zerow. As already mentioned, our relationship with AS.P.R.I. has its roots in the creation of a solid community.
The association currently has about 70 members from different industries, from the leather goods to the paper sector, but who share the same vision.
The common mission that we have set ourselves, can therefore be summarized in offering training and upgrading courses for professionals or anyone who wants to enter the world of craftsmanship, handmade and creative reuse of recovered leather and in supporting the development of recovery artistic-handcrafted in all the various steps.
Zerow therefore joins the path traced by AS.P.R.I, in order to expand it to the digital world and to other product sectors, combining tradition and innovation.
