Launched in 2015, ectu was born out of necessity when the founders were packing for a quick trip and found themselves left with no suitable options to place their personal items. This moment prefaced ectu’s mission to set a new standard in transporting essential belongings near and far with its collection of leather weekenders.
With a cool, minimalist edge and supple leather build, ectu’s pieces are created for those who appreciate a modern simplistic design aesthetic that compliments their sophisticated lifestyle. The concise collection brings to surface the charm of classic elements and understated shapes that make each ectu bag the perfect solution to a multi-dimensional lifestyle.
Combining functionality and luxury in its timeless collection, ectu embodies a well-edited collection for the new generation of working professionals who value travel, architecture, and quality craftsmanship.
EXCELLENCE IN QUALITY
ectu believes in exceptional quality. And it is only after discovering a factory in Ubrique, Spain, that checked all of our boxes did we commit to creating these pieces. For over a century, Ubrique has been world-renowned for its leather industry from tanning leather to crafting leather products for many well-known luxury brands.
The craftsmanship has evolved into an art that has been passed down from generation to generation. Machine cut for precision but assembled by the delicate hands of a select few artisans that work on our collection, every detail of the bag has been examined and handled for excellence.
Our belief in quality is also delivered through the materials we choose. We have searched, sampled, and tested many tanneries in order to find the best Italian leather for our luxury travel bags. All our weekenders are made from treated Italian calfskin leather that has a coating to preserve its natural beauty. The treatment also acts as a layer of protection that is more resistant to scratches and everyday travel use.
