Our fabric manufacturing facility in hosts a weekly Wednesday lunch for production workers to sit down with high level executives.

Our packaging and operations
Éclipse wear is packaged in biodegradable cellophane bags. They are made from plant cellulose cellophane that is naturally 100% compostable. Our current bags have a small strip of adhesive at the top, which is not compostable. But we are always striving for better, so we are looking into ways to eliminate that 1% part of the packaging being sent to the landfill!
Our entire collection is cut and sewn here in Colorado, reducing our carbon footprint while contributing to our local economy. In every piece we design and construct, we are thoughtful of its life cycle - starting with the material we source and ending with recycling pieces to continue the sun protection properties the fabric has.
And when our customers are ready to part with their éclipse, we encourage them to pass it on to a friend, donate it locally, or send it back to us and we will give it a new life (and you’ll receive a discount on your next éclipse purchase!).
We éclipsegLOVE animals!
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." ― Mahatma Gandhi
Éclipse uses no animal products in the making of its clothing! Éclipse wear is suitable for vegans.
Slow fashion is our approach. It's about quality over quantity for us. How can we do more with less? We promote a minimalist wardrobe that is organized and simplifies the daily ritual of getting dressed. Incorporating timeless, versatile and functional designs into your wardrobe means you need fewer pieces.
Launching new items happens organically for us, when we come up with great designs. Consumers request items. Those requests are important to us. We spend weeks and months creating just the right piece.
