Inspired by that special connection we as equestrians have with horses combined with the eagerness and desire to make amazing and responsible equestrian wear, ECTE was established in 2021. It took us a year to design, develop and manufacture our first collection which was launched in October 2022. 

The name Ecte comes from the word connected and refers to the precious bond between the horse and the rider. The word also means real, and that's exactly what we are all about: Real materials, real people, and real connections with our community. 

We are based in Norway and our designs are inspired by Scandinavian nature, colors, and esthetics. Our product range consists of timeless pieces that never go out of style and that we hope will be among your favorites for a long time. We do not intend to release a new collection every season, but rather complement your wardrobe with updates and new colorways.

The clothing industry, including equestrian wear, harms the environment and the most environmentally friendly garments are the ones you don't buy. This is why we put emphasize on buy-better-not-more, and we aim to make the garments you do buy as responsible as possible. By creating high-quality, long-lasting options we hope to contribute to you buying less and and when you do buy we want to give you the opportunity to buy organic, natural and recycled fibers. We do this by working with certified manufacturers and materials, based as close to our markets as possible to avoid transporting products half around the world to reach you. 

We are excited to see you bring Ecte to life. Our community is our inspiration, and we would love to hear your thoughts. Do not hesitate to get in touch with us at, your feedback will help us give you more of what you like and find new ways to improve.
