About: The Brand
'eco by eko' is a line of sustainable apparel mindfully designed by Emily Katherine Oliver.
Her designs take a minimalist approach: defining quality through luxury textiles and functionality. This philosophy revolves around key pieces, durable construction, and natural materials; the integrity to provide valuable goods to a mindful consumer. Each garment has a sense of ease and wearability, while still retaining uniqueness and individuality. She seeks to empower the modern woman through intuitive pieces with an elegant charm, using feminine shapes and sartorial simplicity to create style with substance.
