Shop Name: ecoleeko
A little about ecoleeko: Went to school for textile design, Living in Upstate NY, dealing with a historic house, raising chickens, gardening, stacking wood and Making dolls while dancing to 80s music..nice!
A little about your products: All are Hand made made of Eco friendly materials like organic cotton/hemp and bamboo fleece. I make plush dolls and soft baby rattles along with some bath mittens. I hand dye and print all fabrics to make them colorful and fun, then stitch with organic cotton thread. I only use all natural fillings such as kapok fiber and buckwheat hulls.
What about the organic mission inspires you?: Just feeling good that I am offering a great product made from all natural materials and I'm having fun doing it.
What's your current project: Currently working on learning to do wholesale, marketing and possibly designing some new toys more for boys..might bring in my husband to help.
