The label was established in 1993 by Marc Ecko, an artist, designer and entrepreneur, from New Jersey, at age 20.
Ecko Unltd. was founded in 1993, but the rhinoceros logo did not appear for several years. Marc soon realized he needed a distinctive and unique logo. He chose this as the company's logo because his father owned wooden sculptures of rhinoceros. The Ecko logo depicts a silhouette of a rhinoceros. He has also been involved in charitable projects to prevent the extinction of the animal.
