His vision of sustainability for the Hamburg fashion entrepreneur consists of two pillars – the responsibility towards man and nature.
Stefan Eckert rejects the production, both of its designs and used materials, in low-wage countries. This is mainly due to the not always comprehensible working conditions. The certainty about it is essential for Stefan Eckert. Therefore, the fashion entrepreneur only produces with his own staff in Hamburg, which he himself partially introduces in the context of a 3-year training in the fine art of tailoring.
Stefan Eckert is deeply convinced that he only uses leather from animals, which is a byproduct of the food industry. These include lamb, deer, moose, ostrich and python.
The use of animals bred or hunted for your skin is rejected by Stefan Eckert.
Leather is still the most sustainable product in the fashion market, as high quality parts can last a lifetime. This is the basis for minimizing waste production for the planet, which is one of the most important environmental factors.
Tanning of the leather
The tanning of the leather used today is already partly based on plants, so that environmentally harmful by-products could be reduced to a minimum during production.
These are exclusively by-products or waste products of the food industry. These include lamb, deer, moose, ostrich and python.
The process operated by Stefan Eckert is a recycling of natural materials in the best sense of the word – waste products of the food industry are artfully processed and transformed into a lifelong-lasting product of the fashion industry. In the best case, a leather jacket can even be passed on to the next generation.
