Breakout Session: Home Sanctuary: How To Create a Rejuvenating, Eco-Friendly Personal Space
Bio: Eileen Mockus is someone we want to get to know.
Not only does this CEO of Coyuchi inspire us by changing the way home textiles are sourced and produced, but as busy as this woman is, she’s perfectly ok with us lounging in bed for just a few minutes longer every day. In fact, if we’re nestled under Coyuchi sheets and blankets, she practically insists on it!
Having worked in textiles since college, Eileen is no stranger to the world of weavers, and sustainability has always been on her radar. But, when she helped Pottery Barn source its organic cotton, she also introduced their huge customer base to a whole new way of producing home textiles… and to buying them.
Two years ago, when she became the CEO of Coyuchi, Eileen brought with her the same passion for producing home textiles in an ethical, sustainable way and the drive to share Coyuchi’s brand ethos with its customers. And suffice it to say—it’s working. After all, we surround ourselves with these items every day (towels, sheets, blankets & more!) so of course we want them to be not only safe for our homes and the environment, but safe and fair for those who work so hard to bring Coyuchi’s textiles to life. Added bonus? Coyuchi’s aesthetic is the stuff of dreams!
Since the home textiles industry here in the U.S. has moved overseas, Coyuchi’s products are made there, as well. But Coyuchi makes sure their vendors are certified to produce to their high standards; from dying to finishing, each Coyuchi product has to follow stringent sustainable and eco-friendly guidelines.
The W.E.L.L. Summit is looking forward to welcoming Eileen Mockus as she leads attendees through her Breakout Session on how to create an eco-friendly home sanctuary. She’ll share with us what to look for, what to avoid, and how to ensure personal style is always part of the equation. Attendees will leave with a handout on how to shop stylish, sustainable textiles for the home.
