ECCO IS GLOBAL FAMILY OF SHOEMAKERS.
ECCO was founded in 1963 by Birte and Karl Toosbuy. Trained as a shoemaker, Karl Toosbuy had a dream to own a shoe factory and run his own business. Therefore, the family decided to give up the security of regular jobs, sell their home, and move to Bredebro in southwest Denmark – just north of the German border.
True passion is essential to making great shoes. From drawing the first sketches to presenting our finished shoes in ECCO stores around the world, we apply the utmost attention to detail and quality.
Unique to our industry, we make leather at our own tanneries and produce shoes at our own factories. Our global family of employees, representing 60 nationalities across the globe, is the driving force behind our products. Design, development, production, and retail – we take responsibility all the way.
