Who We Are
A Message From Élise
Dear éclipse Friend,
It began in 2002 with a design for a knuckle-to-shoulder glove designed 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.
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.
éclipse is more than an apparel company as we create a larger platform for wellness and wholeness.
Our clothes are made in small batches locally, instead of flooding the market place 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 local in Colorado, we reduce our carbon footprint, support local jobs, and contribute to our community
éclipse clothing is made of highest quality 37.5® performance fabric or recycled polyester (rPET), both offering a luxury feel and a flattering design so you can wear éclipse from yoga or skiing to dinner.
As an apparel company, we are aware of the waste that clothing manufacture creates and sensitive to our place and role in the planet’s ecosystem and that’s why we promote thoughtful consumption. Get to know us, and see why éclipse is more than an apparel company.
Élise Champe, Founder & CEO
