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.
