What if there were a way to connect buyers and sellers with just a single click? That’s exactly what the Original by Brasil project does by introducing to the market the latest developments in materials for the fashion sector.
In an innovative way, the platform breaks down barriers, shortens the distance and enables access to fashion materials and research in three formats: virtual, in-company and permanent physical sites in Novo Hamburgo/RS, São João Batista/SC, Franca/SP, and Birigui/SP.
With daily updates made by the sellers themselves, the result is an incredibly rich collection consisting of over 700 materials, including fabrics, laminates, leathers, ornaments, heels, and soles.

By Brasil Components and Chemicals is the brand developed by the Brazilian Association of Companies of Components for Leather, Footwear and Manufactured Goods (Assintecal), in partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil). Its aim is to represent the manufacturers of materials for the leather-footwear industry in the foreign market.
The brand promotes the integration between foreign footwear manufacturers and the Brazilian materials companies through projects and strategic activities, thus enabling the cluster of businesses belonging to the By Brasil Components and Chemicals project to provide different markets and audiences with all kinds of solutions.

The Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil) works to promote Brazilian products and services abroad, and to attract foreign investment to strategic sectors of the Brazilian economy. The Agency also engages in a variety of trade promotion activities with the aim of promoting exports and enhancing the value of Brazilian products and services abroad.
