Today consumers rank sustainability as a key factor when buying most products by giving preference to items that are harmless, durable and reusable. Considering this, Silvateam, an Italy-based world leader in the production of plant based extracts, has devised Ecotan, a groundbreaking solution for brands looking to meet this new challenge.
 
This innovative technology allows to produce a new kind of leather that has excellent performance standards, is safe for all and is a truly circular material. Made with natural tannins, Ecotan leathers are free of hazardous substances, creating a naturally healthy environment for the end user. At the end of their useful life, they can be recycled into organic fertilizers.
 
Completing the loop is the new standard to preserve our planet. As the world’s first bio-circular leather, Ecotan is designed to meet these standards and offer brands a key tool to rise to the challenge.
 
Over 20 of the top tanneries in the world- chosen for size and quality- have joined the Ecotan project and are ready to supply the first bio-circular leather.
