About the Campus
At Stahl, we are a firm believer of the idea that if things can be imagined, it can be created.
"Practical experience we gained will help us to carry out our work as project managers. It was a great opportunity to have the chance to do this."
"I am very grateful that Stahl offered us this workshop. We learned a lot and obtained great insight into the work a leather worker does."
"A great opportunity to learn about the theory and practical application. Stahl took care of all the preparations and had everything organized. The workshop has provided us with new insights about daily operations. Good insights."
"The workshop was a great opportunity to spend two days away from our daily work to gain practical experience in our key theme of "Color Matching". I am impressed by the precision with which this work needs to be carried out in order to obtain a good result."
"The workshop was an excellent opportunity to broaden our existing knowledge about leather. I particularly enjoyed the practical work because spending time in the laboratory and "turning" into a color expert was a fun and educational experience. Two truly interesting days at Stahl."
"The practical part I really loved. Especially experiencing myself how difficult it is to mix colors. You really need to be precise: one drop to much can change everything. In addition, you need to have a very good eye for tuning the color in the right direction. Patience and concentration are the key. I really understand now our technicians are doing a very good job."
"Thank You again for the excellent tutorial week we had at STAHL. I am sure we will have to make that a permanent fixture in the Leather Technicians education."
"It was a great experience and I learned a lot in both places. I met excellent people and great leather technicians. Thank you guys for sharing and teaching me many things in a few days and thanks for take care of me. I am very proud of this experience with a great worldwide company and excellent team."

"To be a trainee at Stahl Campus® was a precious experience and great opportunity for me as well as the others. Stahl Campus® shows to me that Stahl gives importance to education and research-development which the leather industry and the researchers (especially the young ones) need. I received so much practical information which contributes to my career development in a short time."
"The workshop was extremely well organized. It was also important for me to get to know the leather worker’s employees perspective."
"Frans broke down the properties of leather by having our class interact with leather samples. He walked us through the tanning, dying, coating and embossing process which brought me great inspiration to start exploring new leather possibilities. With Frans by our sides, we we able to play with our imaginations on how to innovate leather right in the lab for footwear"
