Very soft and loveable. My 14 month old daughter hugged it as soon as she saw it. It is bigger than it appears In the photo which is nice.

About

Ecoleeko.. Inside and Out

Hi there and welcome to Ecoleeko!

The creation of a crazy girl who dreamed a small dream to merge her passion for sustainable materials and her love of creating fun items. That's me! Nice to meet you.

Ecoleeko is created in Upstate NY, in my small studio on the second floor of my historic old house. My days are filled with fun play with my little 1 year old and my nights have become my creative time, spent making and creating all that is Ecoleeko for your wee ones.

My background is in Textile Design and my interest in eco-textiles with my love for art dolls & art quilts led me to merge my sewing abilities with sustainable textiles and eco practices. For more info on my eco practices, please review my policies.

All designs are made and designed by me. I dye my own fabric with non-toxic dyes and I hand print all designs as well, phew! I love coming up with new patterns and sewing is nice and meditative for me. I also love to try custom work, so just convo me if you are inspired!

Thank you for reading about Ecoleeko and enjoy your stay in my small lovely shop (:

Hello and welcome to Ecoleekos Etsy site! Showcasing eco friendly plush toys and products for your baby and youngsters! I design for fun, color and quality! All the pieces are handmade by me in my studio in Upstate NY.

All Ecoleeko Items are made with renewable natural materials:

60% Organic Cotton/40% Hemp Blend Corduroy
100% Sustainable renewable Bamboo Fleece (Now the FTC calls Rayon after processing, is eco-responsibly processed using a wastewater air flow treatment in a closed loop system)
100% Organic Cotton French Terry Cloth
100% Organic Cotton Fleece

-Most fabrics are hand dyed and printed by me in my studio. I use only low-impact fiber reactive dyes. These are colorfast, meaning will not bleed, and become a permanent molecular bond with the fibers in the fabrics. I hand print fabrics using stamps and the same dye.
-All items are sewn by me in my studio with organic cotton yarn.
-All have natural renewable materials for fillings, these include kapok fiber, *walnut crushed shells*(Any doll can be made without walnut shells, if child has tree nut allergy, just convo me for request!) and buckwheat hulls. Kapok fiber is used to fill all items, this can bunch slightly in the wash, if so please read caring instructions below.
-The Ecoleeko tags sewn in to the items are 100% organic cotton twill, stamped by me.



How to care for your newly acquired Ecoleeko Friends!

All Ecoleeko items are handmade, so extra care is needed when washing your items.
*For light soil, please hand wash your item with a mild detergent and let air dry.
*For stains/heavy duty soiling, you can machine wash your items on delicate cool wash and dry in a dryer on light duty/delicates/knits or let air dry. Should your ecoleeko doll stuffing bunch during washing, let fully dry, then just knead stuffing and pull apart until it is redistributed. ( I don't use polyfill or fiberfill as they are plastic based fibers. Ingeo or PLA fibers seem like a good alternative, but are made with Genetically engineered corn)
*All bath mitts can be placed in the wash with your regular wash loads.
*Please note that all fabrics are hand dyed. All fabrics are washed after dying and put through an additional rinse cycle.


About Ecoleeko Packaging-
-All hangtags are hand stamped by me on 100% recycled paper, connected to the item with linen or hemp yarn.
-Each purchase will be wrapped in 100% recycled paper tissue, stamped with the Ecoleeko logo and tied with a biodegradable paper bow. All of which can be reused.
-It is then sent in a USPS box, which is certified cradle to cradle, along with a 1/2 sheet invoice printed on 100% recycled paper that doubles on the back as an information, shopping guide to textiles and soft goods.
-Added to any Etsy purchase, I like to include other Etsy sellers info, samples, etc as a special treat!
-I also offer GiftWrap with 80% recycled paper.. http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5991009§ion_id=5712032

I am always looking to try and improve my materials and supplies. All trim waste is kept for a future unknown project, so no fabric or paper waste is ever thrown away.

Alittle about me..I went to college for textile design and have always been interested in working with sustainable textiles. I enjoy designing and creating Ecoleeko items in my studio at home in Upstate New York. I also enjoy growing our own vegetables, organic gardening, raising chickens, ducks, playing with my dogs and any creative art endeavor.
I try my best to be aware of anything I can do to lessen my impact. We have supplemented electric with wind energy at our house, recycle everything that can be and compost all biodegradable waste. It's never ending and I'm always learning!

Thanks For Reading!
