Ecopell 2000 is a tannery that was offi cially founded  with this name in 1999. However, as the company  administrator Alessandra Giannoni explains, the  tradition upon which the company is based is far  longer-lived: “I belong to the fourth generation of a  family whose roots are fi rmly planted in the leather  tanning industry.”

Located in Santa Croce sull’Arno, in the beating heart  of the tanning sector, how does Ecopell distinguish  itself from the fi erce competition?

“One great advantage is that our entire productive   cycle takes place in-company” – states Alessandra  Giannoni, who then continues – “As far as processing  is concerned, our strong points are vegetable tanning
and chrome-tanning, which is used for considerably  thick skins.”
Ecopell is an important name that inevitably evokes  issues related to ecology...  

“Nowadays, this topic is often abused and exploited  beyond any merit; each tannery must necessarily use  chemicals for their own processes. However, we work  to control the environmental impact: we strive to do  everything a tannery can to protect the environment.”
