Each year hundreds of children in North America are diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes - UNLIKE Type 2, Type 1 Diabetes is autoimmune disorder which occurs mostly in young children or teens and cannot be prevented or cured with a healthy lifestyle or diet.
Our baby boy was only 9 months old when he developed type 1 Diabetes. What we thought was a bad case of flu turned out to be an onset of diabetic coma. Now he requires 4-6 insulin injections every day to survive and has to have his blood tested for glucose levels every 3-4 hours around the clock for the rest of his life. Fortunately, some of the brightest minds of our time like Dr. Faustman of The Faustman Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital are working on a cure right now and hopefully will get one in Sammy's lifetime. Please get involved, educate yourself and spread the word to others:

This took a long time to get to me, but worth the wait. Fabric is very soft with stretch. Made to my measurements, nice construction. I love the hood, it wraps like a cowl neck and keep wet hair from sticking to my back. I couldn’t find a robe long enough anywhere else, thank you Econica.

Nothing like previous material and now stuck with a 95.00 mistake I’ll never wear. Lesson learned. Reached out to seller still stuck with these, livid.

Thank you very much for your feedback, Bridgett :) A lot of our styles and fabrics have changed (for better!) since the last time you ordered 7 years ago. Had we known you wanted exactly the same fabric as in the year 2011 we could have special ordered it just for you :) Thank you very much again and I truly hope you will give our shop another chance or at least let us mail you a swatch kit to see the full array of all the luxurious organic fabrics and beautiful colors we offer. :) warm regards, Natallia

About

Our story...

When buying from an artist/maker, you are buying more than just an object/painting. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks & months of frustration and moments of PURE JOY. YOU AREN'T JUST BUYING A THING, you are buying a piece of heart, part of soul, a moment of someone's life. Most importantly, you are buying the artist more time to do something they are passionate about.
Using as many organic and responsibly produced fabrics as possible, we strive to keep our collections small and beautifully unique, without compromising the luxury and the outstanding quality of Econica's garments. Each and every piece of our organic apparel, lingerie or cashmere line is carefully designed and meticulously created by hand right here in Ontario, Canada. By offering you custom tailored, and many times one of a kind pieces, we want women to look beautiful when they wear our clothing, while feeling good about the way it was made.
