Ecoleeko started from a left over dream I had once had back in college....
After graduating with a BS in Textile Design , I knew I wanted to work with sustainable fabric materials, at that time it mostly was hemp and organic cotton. The idea kinda fizzled in the midst of real life and work, as we all know can happen! I was still making artistic things but more in the realm of art dolls, nothing having to do with what I went to school for, But I later found myself in an opportunity where I could devote my time, creativity and passion to create things that are ecofriendly, sustainable and artistic. On unsolicited advice from my husband, told me to go with what I know and love to do.
So I took a leap and here we are! After much research in sustainable materials, non toxic dyes and just taking time to design and sew, Ecoleeko was born.
Now with my 3 1/2 year old Mr. toddler man, I am a stay at home small business mom and Ecoleeko is ever changing! He has inspired me to look at toys in a new way. I am adding more "boy" friendly items within my line and I am hoping to introduce more sensory toys for 2014-15. I am also interested in expanding into new fabrics and colors. If you have a suggestion for a new product you'd like to see in Ecoleeko, let me know! I am always open to suggestions.
Thank you for taking your time to read about EcoLeeko. I hope you enjoy Ecoleeko as much as I do making everything for you and your little ones!
