ECCO launches innovative new accessories concept

‘ECCO Leather Goods’ is a new bags and accessories concept from ECCO that offers functional, futuristic, and responsibly-made leather goods – designed in-house and using high-quality leathers and craftsmanship from ECCO Leather’s own gold-rated tannery. 

The new line has been designed for a progressive consumer who wants innovative bags that fit their hybrid, on-the-go lifestyles. 

“ECCO Leather Goods is an opportunity for ECCO to connect with a younger, more modern consumer that we’ve dubbed the ‘New Utopians.’ We aim to be radically inclusive and proudly introduce them to the future of leather accessories,” says Stefano Pillepich, Head of ECCO Leather Goods.

Many of the bags are hands-free, giving the wearer greater freedom of movement. Within the line are many small leather goods that can be attached to one another to create eclectic and unique combinations. On top of this, the collection is gender-fluid, meaning anyone can wear any piece – there are no men’s or women’s styles.

In line with ECCO’s purpose to act for people and planet, the collection features pieces made with DriTan leather, a technique pioneered on-site at our own gold-rated tannery, which reduces water consumption in the tanning process and produces less waste water.

“From the research we conducted, we feel we have really good insights into what young, ethically-minded consumers want and what they’re missing. We use the most innovative leathers from ECCO Leather, with eco-conscious materials including DriTan leathers and certified sustainable textiles,” explains Stefano Pillepich.

The ECCO Leather Goods concept has been inspired by the rebellious and soulful aesthetics of the ECCO brand’s founding years in the 1960s. Lettering from the archives is reborn in an alphabet of attachable charms.

ECCO Leather Goods products are available from 7 September 2021 at selected ECCO shops and online. Find your nearest ECCO shop here:
