Good Practice Project
Nuori ranskalaisyrittäjä on kehittänyt kalannahan innovatiivisen parkitusprosessin yhteistyössä paikallisten kalastajien ja suunnittelijoiden kanssa. Prosessi perustuu muiden eurooppalaisten kalastusyhteisöjen käyttämiin perinteisiin menetelmiin. Nyt ”merellistä nahkaa” myydään muotisuunnittelijoille eri puolille Ranskaa.
