Leather: the ultimate upcycled material
Leather is a by-product of the food industry. Transforming hides into useful objects, rather than discarding them, is an ancient human craft used for over 9,000 years and one of the earliest forms of upcycling.
Gold or Silver-Star Rated tanneries
We are committed to excellent environmental and labor practices. All of our tanneries are certified by the Leather Working Group and are Silver or Gold rated. Leather is a by-product of the meat industry—and we source our materials from carefully selected food-processing companies in Europe and the United States that meet international animal welfare standards.
We use sustainable textiles such as recycled nylon, recycled cotton, and recycled polyester on bag elements such as lining, webbing, mesh, zipper taping, and thread.
Recycled and Reusable Dust Bag
We are pleased to offer a recycled and reusable dust bag with every purchase. ECCO Dustbags are soft, durable, and constructed to safeguard your leather bag or accessories. Each bag is woven from a blend of 100% recycled materials, including cotton and polyester sourced from GRS certified and responsible supply chains. Crafted with a drawstring and shoulder straps, you can easily recycle or repurpose ECCO Dust Bags in a variety of ways outside of your closet. Our dust bag protects your purchase throughout its journey – from the factory to stores to your home – without the need for a plastic poly bag. Please excuse any dirt marks it has gathered along the way. We hope you will join us in our mission to reduce plastic.
We have bold ambitions when it comes to minimizing our impact on the environment.
By 2030 our goal is to operate with closed-loop water systems and to use only bio-based, recycled, or recyclable chemicals and substances. Today, we strive to use upcycled and recycled materials at every opportunity. We are also developing new technologies to reduce water and solid waste in our leather production.
