Certificates...

Natural leather is not only an often used material. It also differs heavily in manufacturing process and quality. That is why we are proud that with our leather, we can present you the most environmental- and health-compatible leather from industrial productionr. Our products have been tested by several independent test institutes. Regularly, ie every year (IVN and Biokreis) or every two years (ECARF), we send our leather to the laboratory for testing. The result was overwhelming: The outstanding quality has been confirmed with all important certificates and seals of approval.

 

   IVN

   Biokreis e.V.

   ECARF

IVN

The International Association Natural Textile Industry certified all 38 nappa and velour leather of each collection – as well as all Ecopell lining leathers. Also Rodeo and Rodeo+ are meanwhile certified. The strict guidelines of the IVN evaluate (once a year) not only the product but all the related production steps – from stock farming to the tanning process as well as the own wastewater disposal. In particular we want to thank the subcontract tannery Südleder for their support of our initiative.

 

Detailed information on the criteria of this single standard for natural leather in Europe is available on the website of the IVN. We are pleased to be once again officially confirmed in our efforts to produce a very environmentally friendly natural leather.

 

 

"The conditions of IVN-foundation imply, that only those may use the seal for their communication,

who are certified themselves – in this case meaning the Ecopell GmbH. Our customers can achieve the certification on their own. Since other components might be used with Ecopell – such as yarn or glue – those components need to be proven as harmless regarding skin tolerance. As soon as the seal is confirmed it can be used in your communication. Otherwise, only a textual reference about the use of Ecopell leather and its certification as allergy friendly is also possible. In such an instance, the use of the IVN- seal itself is restricted."

 

 

Biokreis e.V.

Also Biokreis, the German Association for ecological farming certified all Ecopell leathers in every year. As member of Biokreis we are engaged together with another 120 agricultural companies, 150 producers and 200 consumers for a consequent developement of ecological and sustainable subsistence strategies.

 

 

 

"The conditions of Biokreis e.V. imply, that only those actually certified may use the seal for their communication – in this case meaning the Ecopell GmbH. A textual reference about the use of Ecopell leather and its certification is possible.

Only the use of the seal itself is restricted."

ecarf

As the first German company in the leather category, Ecopell has applied for the ECARF quality seal of the European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation.

 

“Provided that the manufacturer or service provider fulfils the specific quality requirements guaranteeing a better quality of life for allergics”, the European foundation states on their website. All leathers of the nappa and velour collection, as well as our lining leathers were tested and certified every two years. Our efforts to offer leather an environmentally friendly and natural product receives once more official recognition and sets the overall standard for leather."
