DRITAN

The first solid step towards water-free leather manufacturing


The history of the tanning industry goes back 10,000 years – and the process was always thought to be impossible without the use of large amounts of water. ECCO Leather’s new DriTan™ technology breaks the paradigm and is now set to revolutionise the entire leather industry.

THE RESULT

DriTan™ saves 20 litres of water per hide equal to 25 million litres of water saved annually — enough water to keep 9.000 people hydrated for one year.  And is saving 600 tons of sludge that go to landfills per year.

THE APPLICATION

Unveiling DriTan’s™ Game Changing Technology


In celebration of the sustainable breakthrough in tanning, ECCO re-launched its iconic ECCO Soft 8 sneaker using DriTan™ leather. The shoe was sold exclusively at ECCO’s flagship store in Ginza, Tokyo, during the IWA World Water Congress 2018.
