Footwear, ECCO Leather, 2018.

This semester we have collaborated with ECCO Leather (NL) and two students, Ruben Hoogvliet and Kas Hermkens, have been selected to join the ECCO Leather workshop. Students have worked to develop innovative leather solutions, exploring new perspectives on material and application, resulting in a collection of designed material and footwear.

Earlier this year the students visited the ECCO Leather company in Dongen exploring the raw processes of the material. We emphasise the importance of industry visits as a valuable way for students to gain knowledge and skills providing hands-on experience as well as practice-based learning.
