Photo albums made from smooth naturally tanned leather.
Made by a cooperative of 40 families, the leather is dyed using natural tree bark and vegetable extract. The album pages are made from recycled, acid-free cotton paper with hand-torn edges and natural interleaves. The strong paper is also perfect for watercolour and drawing, making this a perfect sketchbook or as a scrapbook.
Requires photo corners.
Award-winning throws - exclusive to us!
Sumptuous throws made from the wool of Derbyshire Gritstone sheep grazing at High Nightam Farm in the Peak District National Park.
Available in three colours: Gritstone (deep grey-indigo), Limestone (cool mid-grey) and Fleece (natural creamy wool with slight flecks). For sizes see tab below. The small Fleece throw has a subtle check weave.
Completely processed, dyed and finished in the UK. The cloth was woven at Farfield Heritage Mill in Sedbergh, Cumbria on 1930s Dobcross power looms - among the last working examples in Britain.
We commissioned this range in collaboration with local farmers (see the Eco Eco tab below for further information) for which we won the first ever Peak District Environmental Quality Mark Special Award.

An innovative way to freshen and perfume your home naturally without creating a toxic atmosphere.
Canopy Infusion leaves are as natural as the forests that inspired them. Lay them amongst pot pourri, display on a stand, exhibit on a platter or hang in your window. Each leaf will perfume your room every day for up to four weeks. Their unique crystallised perfume essence is a modern 'Enfleurage', the oldest perfume extraction method, and contains up to 40% of beautifully pure perfume.
Bamboo, pebble and lead-free crystal holders also available (see Related Products tab below)
Available in four fragrances: White Petals, Innocent Vanilla, Linen & Lavender and Spa.
Men's shirt in an easy-going leaf pattern in natural dyes on organic cotton, fastened with coconut buttons.
Please note that naturally dyed garments may not be as resistant to fading as those coloured with synthetic chemicals. This is part of their charm and not a fault.
- Hooded stripey overall in sunstripe or seastripe. Fully lined with contrast colour which makes it a little warmer than most babygrows. Hood with contrast loop. Nickel-free poppers down front and both legs.
One of our customers liked this overall so much that she bought it in red once her son grew out of his blue one.
Welcome to Eco Eco
Formerly based in the Peak District National Park, Derbyshire, we recently moved our business to Dorset, near the Devon border (we like counties that begin with 'D'!) We take a lot of care to select clothing and items for the home and garden from suppliers who care for people and the environment. Our range makes it easier for you to live more sustainably and reduce the toxins around your home and your family.
Most of our garments are made from organic fibres and all are ethically produced. We don’t sell items that contain PVC or formaldehyde finishes and the fabrics are coloured with non-toxic dyes. The ranges we offer are primarily produced by European companies and details of their manufacture and ethos are available on each product page. We stock only eco-friendly clothes for women, men and children on our website - sorry we no longer have any real-world shops. We hunt for good quality, classic garments with a twist that you’ll love to wear and that will last for more than just a season. Fair trade jewellery in tagua nut and organic cotton accessories are also chosen to appeal to those who love to shop with a clear conscience.
Our eco home range includes elegant fair-trade gifts, decorative items made from recycled glass, recycled and FSC stationery, FSC and bamboo home accessories and garden products that enhance the eco-friendly home. We look for great design coupled with thoughtful manufacture to help you choose the green decorating option without compromise.
Exclusive to us is our FSC/recycled gift wrap designed by British artist Lucie Summers and produced in the UK by an environmentally-friendly printing company that is powered entirely by renewable energy. We also commissioned organic, fairtrade cotton fabric printed with a pattern created by the same artist. These items are both available online, alongside unique organic cotton gingham fabric that is coloured with herbal dyes.
Recently we collaborated with a local farm on special wool project which saw us organise the collection and processing of their annual fleece clip to produce genuine British knitting yarn from the Derbyshire Gritstone sheep alongside woven throws. All the conservation grade wool products were processed and finished entirely in the UK. Both Eco Eco and the farm, High Nightam, were honoured with the first ever ‘Peak District Environmental Quality Mark (EQM) Special Award’ for our work together. We are now brand partners with the Campaign for Wool and are keen to promote the use of British wool – a sadly underused resource.
We are registered stockists of Earthborn and Auro natural paints which produce a beautiful finish for walls and woodwork for the green home. We don't currently offer these online but are happy to quote for mail order - just email us details of the products and quantities and we will quote you for delivery to your address. The paints are low odour or odourless and give superior results without petrochemicals. These paints are better for you, your health and the environment.
We were formerly holders of the Peak District Environmental Quality Mark that is awarded to companies who demonstrate an active concern for the local and global environment through waste and energy management and careful sourcing. Sadly their scheme does not extend to the south west so we can no longer be listed as members, but please do patronise the registered businesses if you live in or visit the Peak District.
