Our environmental profile
Ecopell GmbH was founded in 1982 as Schomisch GmbH. In 2007 the operational business of the Schomisch GmbH was changed to Ecopell GmbH and continued to operate as a leather marketer of naturally tanned leather – wholly owned and operated by the founding Schomisch family. In 2000, the enterprise moved from Essen-Kettwig to Weitnau-Seltmans, Bavaria, Germany where the administration and distribution takes place to the present day.
The manufacturing of leather occurs in select commercial tanneries. Ecopell primarily cooperates with a tannery in South Germany but also employs another facility in the European Union. The tanneries manufacture the various Ecopell leather types only adhering to Ecopell’sstrict guidelines.
Our partners work according to European environmental standards in terms of water conservation, emission protection and waste management and are committed to continuously lowering their environmental impact.
Our commercial tannery is certified according to ISO 9001.
