eco eco's history
Eco Eco Ltd. was formed in 2005 by Alison Jackson-Bass to take eco fashion to venues around the UK where customers could try on the clothes rather than having to purchase all their ethically and environmentally produced organic clothing by mail order. However, we soon realised we needed a permanent base, as well as an online home.
The first shop opened at The Courtyard in Hope in August 2006, and moved to even nicer premises in early 2009. It stocks clothes for men, women and children in organic fibres wherever possible alongside fairtrade accessories and jewellery. The second shop opened in August 2008, has a range of products for the house and garden, including natural paints, organic cosmetics and body care, fairtrade gifts, toys and craft kits. The online orders are despatched direct from Hope.
In March 2012 we shut our clothes shop in order to concentrate on selling online and also to look into producing our own clothing range, in a small way initially, that will be made in the UK. We are hoping that we will be able to produce the sorts of garments we love from wonderful fabrics in timeless designs. We want to create clothes that our customers will wear and wear and always turn to as favourite garments.

Our home shop closed on May 26th 2012, preparatory to our move south to Dorset. Thanks to all our regular customers who have supported us over the years.
