Our approach to responsible sourcing considers our impact on people.
EcoBalanza believes that true sustainability extends to the web of people who supply our materials and build our furniture. All of our products are hand-built in Seattle by our craftspeople in collaboration with a close-knit community of suppliers, many of whom are women-owned businesses. We work with local, family-owned farms to source our wool and cotton whenever possible.
In search of the very best materials, we must sometimes reach farther afield, but when we do, we take care to build relationships only with suppliers known for fair treatment of their workers.
As part of our commitment to our community, we work actively to preserve traditional furniture-making practices and techniques. We do this because we believe in honoring crafts that have stood the test of time and want to ensure that they are not replaced by mass manufacturing.
