Introduction

Dear readers!

‚Nature doesn’t forget anything‘ – this also applies to a cowhide.
Every leather expert is aware of this fact on the basis of years of experience.
But not all leather experts deal with this knowledge in the same way.

Unfortunately the bigger group of them tries everything to remove the memory off the hide and makes all the remembrances forgotten. They rigorously do this since decades regardless of the consequences. At the same time the consumers were told that this kind of leather is ‘normal’. The result of this development is a wide distribution of unified leather surfaces without an own character and a brochure like this needs to explain what pure, natural leather really looks like.

Ecopell has written down the following because from our point of view these little characteristics on each leather hide have too much pride to be covered or make them disappear. These are marks that nature has put onto the hide. Natural features so to speak.
Because of this ecopell manufactures leather that shows its characteristics. It is leather that turns every product made out of it into an odd piece of character.
In addition to this aesthetic view there are also some tangible arguments.
The substances that are used to cover the natural features are plastics that demonstrably pollute the environment, damage the human health and worsen the characteristics of the leather.

Let this brochure take you on a little excurse about the natural features of leather. We are pleased to lead you as crucial consumers to a more astute view when looking at the surface of leather next time.
