About

The story of ECO Chic began with my desire to learn to sew & make cute clothes for my little girl.

Eager to learn I took a sewing class where you make the quintessential tote bag .... and that sparked an idea.

Living in California at the time, my city was banning single-use-bags. As a huge animal advocate I completely stood behind the bag ban as a way to protect our wildlife and our environment. After all, our kids (and us!) need a clean planet to live on.

But those reusable grocery bags ... so ugly and impractical! After using them a few times I realized just how gross and full of germs they were. Not to mention they weren't very sturdy .. and have I said UGLY?!?

Back to the sewing machine I went determined to make a fashionable reusable grocery bag that I wouldn't be embarrassed to carry.
Of course, it would need to be washable so it wouldn't contaminate my purchases with nasty germs. And it should fold, so I could carry and store multiple bags.
From there the ideas kept coming and sample after sample was made.

Different styles, changing features and an assortment of fabric later, the Urban Shopping Tote was born.

Since that day in 2012 I've added new styles and have several collections. Some have worked and some have been put to rest. New designs are in the works for 2016 and the business is growing forward.

Since that summer day I was determined to revolutionize the way we use reusable shopping bags ... and I won't quit until I reach my goal.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
All of my products are handmade either by me or with the help of local artisans who share a passion for sewing.

I only use faux animal products including faux leather, faux snakeskin and faux whatever other animal "skin" design you might see on my bags.

I try to reduce waste by emailing electronic invoices and receipts, reusing shipping boxes, and limiting the amount of paper product I include with shipping.
My kits are made with 100% recycled kraft boxes.

MY BIO:
My name is Patricia, although I go by Patty, except to one special person who gets to call me 'Mama'.

I feel like I've lived many lives as my world is forever changing. I was born and raised in New York where I had many dreams. Some where to be a chef, others to be a fashion designer, and yet others to live and work on a horse ranch. However life gets in the way and you take different paths that sometimes steer you away from your childhood dreams.

After school I had a great time working in the restaurant industry for many years. I also dipped my toe in modeling, which was fun and exciting and brought me to Milan, Italy for a stint. As one door closed another opened and I found out I was an excellent event planner, which became my chosen profession for many years to come.

As time passed, my ideals changed as did my career. Life took a few more twists and turns and I found myself married and living in Los Angeles, CA. That is where I met the most amazing person in my life: my daughter, who is my inspiration, my passion, and my determination.

I love country music and one of my favorite artists is Keith Urban. There's a line from his song "Stupid Boy" that sums up the next couple of years in my life very well.

It took awhile for her to figure out she could run
But when she did, she was long gone
Long gone

Gathering the strength to free myself from a bad marriage took it's toll on me and my business. But with each knock down, I picked myself up, dusted myself off, and became stronger. Over two years later I was finally free, single, and moving to Texas to make my dreams come true.

My daughter and I now live in Georgetown, Texas which is just outside the awesome town of Austin. We are incredibly happy here as we rebuild our lives and dream of wide open spaces, delicious meals with food from our garden, horses and chickens, rescuing more and more animals, family, friends and any other wild things that pop into our minds.

I guess I did find my way back to my childhood dreams after all.
