The story behind the brand

Karl Toosbuy, the founder of ECCO, was a shoemaker who, in his early 30`ies, was a manager in a shoe factory in Copenhagen. But he wanted a factory, and in 1963 the family moved to Bredebro, close to Tønder in South Jutland and built the factory here, and today the company's headquarters is still in the town.

Today ECCO has employees from over 50 nationalities, and they make leather at their tanneries; they design, develop, produce and sell their products - so the company take responsibility all the way.
