A Message from Élise


Dear éclipse Friend,

It began in 2002 with my design for a knuckle-to-shoulder glove to protect my hands and arms in sunny Boulder, Colorado. All of my friends seemed to want a pair.  Today, éclipse has evolved into a full line of versatile, urban tech clothing and accessories, manufactured sustainably and locally in small batches from recycled fabric.

éclipse is about Freedom In Simplicity: paring down, streamlining, divesting your life of things that no longer serve you.  This allows more space, mentally and physically, and therefore more freedom.

Instead of flooding the market with a vast excess of cheaply made clothing that goes out of fashion in a season. éclipse focuses on well-made, durable clothing of classic designs that are made to last. By keeping manufacturing in the United States, we reduce our carbon footprint, support local jobs, and contribute to our community.

éclipse is more than an apparel company as we create a larger platform for wellness and wholeness. Given our strong sense of mission, we are a Public Benefit Corporation.
