A Natural Process

ECOWHITE® is our natural tanning process for leathers which supports biodegradability over their lifespan, so that produced forms of leather such as clothing, shoes and automotive are friendly to the environment.

Ecowhite® means

  • 1)
    A natural tanning process free of derivates of heavy metals
    EcoWhite® includes only modified bio-aldheydes. Leathers will show innovative characteristics and the same leathers shall be easily transformed into carbon dioxide and water, which then can be used as a natural fertilizer in agriculture.
  • 2)
    Its process complies with applicable norms and directives.
  • 3)
    Physical resistance
    Resulting leathers better resist stresses such as tear strength, burst strength and tensile stregth, as well as improved transpiration properties, fastness to steam, and they display good perspiration-proof properties.
  • 4)
    Human tolerance
    As no heavy metals materials are involved in the used chemicals, leathers and skins treated by the Ecowhite system, the result is a more hypoallergenic leather in comparison to usual chrome-tanned leathers.
