About Us: eco * organic * beautiful

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 make them, sell them and wear them.

What impacts at one end of the line will impact at the other… or “echo” through the chain.

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 and you, our awesome customer, will purchase more organic  – this in the end will drive up the demand for organic in the marketplace and allow for prices to lower on fabrics over time.

Echo Verde is based in beautiful Vancouver, Canada. We make “slow fashion” classic 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.    Our three leaves in our logo each stand for one part of the chain:

Our suppliers, Us, and…. YOU!                      

 

Our mission is to create quality organic clothing at price points that are affordable with styles that last through many seasons and can be combined for versatility.

The company was started in 2009 by Jane Nemis as a way of taking her 30+ years in the industry of fashion and translating them into something that helps the environment!   A self-described “eco warrior” Jane has 18 years experience in designing and producing eco and organic textiles and garments, inspecting factories and ensuring compliance to fair trade standards and forming relationships with smaller, family owned factories.   She continues to work with textile and fabric suppliers to create new and better fabrics, cleaner production methods and sustainable products that last.

I mean ……….  hey,  we  all 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.
