As an Ecologically Conscious Organization, Walleska Ecochicc’s primary focus is People and Planet. Although based predominantly out of Dallas, TX, Walleska has stayed close to her roots by taking on the project as a way to offer employment and a creative outlet to women in her native country of Brazil.
Through the principles of fair trade, the creative community has spread through nearly all of the twelve satellite cities outside of Brazil’s capital, Brasilia, employing at all times between 30 to 50 artisan women. As of 2008, Walleska Ecochicc expanded its production of accessories to the U.S., and it’s based on the same principles to support local artisans. The base materials used for our product are mostly organic and natural; or recycled. The efforts of many contribute to each handmade item that is sold. Through the recycling efforts of friends and family, as well as kind strangers, we have been able to continue creating ecologically conscious, high-quality products; while maintaining our standards of production based on sustainability.
The inspiration for our company stems from the resourcefulness that is rooted in Brazilian culture along with the American sense of opportunity. We continue to be inspired each and every day as we witness the community developing and flourishing with each product, design, and style produced. The Ecochicc process has become a means to improve sustainability: both economically and socially. Overall, we strongly believe in our system, a system upon which all involved are supportive of one another.
