For Echo + Air, sustainable fashion is about creating design with purpose and longevity. When we sit down to edit each collection, we strive to imagine how each design will stand the test of time. We are not trend driven; our approach is about forward thinking. Our intent is to create well-executed, thoughtful designs that our customers can wear for years to come.
Echo + Air is 100% cut & sewn in Los Angeles. Manufacturing clothing domestically and ethically is integrated into our design philosophy. Because we work with a local factory, we are able to manage quality from start to finish. The cutters & sewers are skilled and paid fairly for their work. They are an integral part of the Echo + Air team; we value their input, talent, and knowledge.
Many of our fabrics are knitted locally. We are able to work with some fantastic local knitting companies to create beautiful novelty knits each season. Making a smaller carbon footprint is a big part of our ethos. We do our best to source eco-friendly fabrics whenever possible. Modal, Tencel, and Recycled Polyester are some of our favorite materials.
By default, digital printing is a greener option in contrast to screen-printing or rotary printing. There is significantly less power, waste, and water used. Recycled Polyester is the ideal fabric for digital printing. It doesn’t require any chemical pre-treatments or solvents to print this fabric.
