ecopell is pure, very soft, vegetable tanned cowhide leather. Made in Germany – and one of the most environmentally friendly leathers worldwide!
ecopell leather are dyed with synthetic dyes and without the use of heavy metals . In contrast to the conventional chrome tanning pure vegetable tanning agents are used so that genuine leather stays a noble and harmless natural product.
Naturalness mustn’t be hidden, individuality is a sign of quality. That is why our leather also shows marks of a cow life living in bio husbandry and is neither embossed nor sealed with plastics.
Because of the unsealed surface without chemical impregnation, it is very breathable, allergy-free and has a high skin tolerance.
Please read this carefully before buying a product with ECO leather!
Disadvantages of ECO-LEATHER
ECO Leather is very soft and nice to touch, however, it is not as well suited for stroller accessories like our PRO leather due to the following points:
- ECO leather is optically not perfect, it can have lighter / darker areas, small scars, different grain, etc. (see right)
- It is not an “OUTDOOR” leather, which means rain and wetness can lead to spots that might not fully disappear after drying
- Because the surface of ECO leather is not treated or sealed, it is worn out easier than common leather (eg. by forming a patina, lighter/darker areas, …) and it’s not as robust against scratches.
- ECO Leder is very stretchy, it might get wider with time so covers will get looser.
Characteristics of ECO-LEATHER
Due to the natural treatment of eco-leather, it is visually not as “perfect” as conventional leather.
It may have characteristic features such as lighter / darker areas in coloring, small scars, etc.
These are not defects or signs of poor quality and not a reason for complaint!
If you opt for a Stylebug product of ecopell leather, you will get a very nice, smooth, vegetable tanned leather with all facets of nature!
