ecoSkin is the brainchild of industry veteran and founder, Sandy Skinner. Using her years of apparel experience and natural drive, she launched ecoSkin to make a positive difference for apparel customers and planet alike. Sandy operates ecoSkin with attention to the smallest detail in her quest to improve the environment and provide a socially responsible contemporary collection. She insists her dye houses and manufacturing facilities—all in the Los Angeles area—follow her demanding quality, environmental and labor standards. And, she personally oversees every high-quality and eco-friendly detail, from the selection of raw material to the oversight of meticulous local dying, weaving and sewing to the design of green hangtags and labels.
“This is my passion,” Sandy says. “I am committed to making ecoSkin a successful company that I and the industry can be proud of.” She adds: “We are in our infancy with many aspects of eco-friendly apparel. Green technology and environmental standards are still evolving and quality raw materials and dyes are scarce. All of this is challenging but worth the effort. The more customers demand responsibly-produced eco-friendly products, the more the industry will demand responsible suppliers and the faster we will clean up our planet, making green living mainstream living.”
