Meet the Makers
Ekotree is one of only a handful of knitwear brands actually producing all its knitwear here in Ireland. Drop in and see how we test yarns, build programmes, knit pieces, construct and finish the knitwear.
Ekotree only uses top quality natural yarns including cashmere, merino wool, linen, alpaca and silk. Blended yarns are used too including cashmere/merino/silk, merino/alpaca, cashmere/linen, cashmere/cotton, camel & yak.
Reducing and eliminating waste is an intrinsic part of Ekotree’s core values. Advanced fully fashioned knitting technology and finishing techniques reduces wastage significantly. Design, sampling, manufacturing, finishing and packaging are carried out in the studio giving us full control over all stages of the making process.
