TEAR RESISTANT LEATHER
The weave was 1st invented in the early 20th century for its properties of durability and strength even in lightweight fabrics, used in parachutes. Through time it has been produced in many materials from its original silk to nylon and now we are introducing it in leather.
The distinct feature of ripstop is a crosshatch pattern which is created by weaving thicker, reinforcement yarns in intervals. The interlocking pattern stops any tear from spreading. This strong yet light material, with a ripstop functionality and aesthetic, has built an appeal in the outdoor sector.
ECCO leathers FSDX Ripstop comes in a variety of options. The ripstop pattern is available in two sizes with tear resistance performance, and the ultimate version is also waterproof.
