About Us

Verde: is Italian for green *
Here at Echo Verde we believe that what we do should have as little impact as possible on the earth and enrich the lives of the people who wear them, make them and sell them. With that in mind, we use only textiles that leave a “greener” footprint. We produce in ethical conditions and pay fair living wages. We do not mark our garments up to high margins as we believe organic should be available to everyone!

Echo Verde is based in Vancouver, Canada but manufactured locally and over seas. We make “slow fashion” clothing for women in natural and organic textiles, and believe in ethical business practices, sustainable production, and connecting and forming relationships with retailers and suppliers.

What impacts at one end of the line will impact at the other… or “echo” through the chain.The company was started in 2009 by Jane Nemis. Jane has 30+ years experience as a designer/merchandiser and consultant and 18 years experience in designing and producing eco and organic textiles and garments. She continues to work with textile and fabric suppliers to create new and better fabrics, cleaner production methods and sustainable products that last.

Our mission is to create good quality organic clothing at price points that are affordable with styles that last through many seasons and can be combined for versatility. Hey, we want the same things in life you do!

If you have any questions about us, we would be happy to answer them and we love hearing from you!

We hope you like our collections and enjoy wearing our clothing and thank you for helping us leave a smaller footprint.
