Taking place at 10 Corso Como, the workshop was organised in collaboration with Ecco’s leather arm Ecco Leather and its At Kollektive fashion collaborations initiative.

Visitors to the workshop had the opportunity to customise sheets of organic light pink leather with handmade natural dyes, petals and paints. They used tools like heat guns, airbrushing guns and stamps to add their own flair to the porous leather.

Ecco also showcased design objects in the space, made with its translucent Apparition leather, including a set of tables and chairs and curtains. Work was shown from collaborators including Anne Holtrop, Bianca Sanders, Kostas Murkudis, Natacha Ramsay-Levi and NM3.

Ecco CEO Panos Mytaros said: “Milan Design Week is where design, materials and craftsmanship meet each other. For years, I believed that Ecco should be a part of it and am proud of us being here next to other iconic brands.

“Being makers, we believe in materials, and Ecco Leather is our material innovation vehicle. For us, the exhibition is a manifesto that affirms our brand-wide commitment to innovation, progress, thoughtful design, and translating that to an experience for the audience. Leather will always be a limitless material for us.”
