360 Ecotique is a labor of love launched by two best friends.
Established in March of 2009, 360 Ecotique’s mission is to provide our clientele with affordable independent design, and specially selected vintage apparel and accessories.We operate from the conviction that fashion can be at once artful, fun, entirely sustainable, and a way to engage deeply with a community. With that at the heart of what we do, we function as both vintage clothing boutique as well as a gallery space for Chico, California’s vibrant textile arts scene.
The two of us were brought together by a shared love of old glamour made new. Each started her venture in fashion as an independent designer, selling repurposed textile pieces in various venues, but we fantasized about a shop of our own, and came together as business partners to provide Chico with a steadfast space for accessing the work of the many contemporary crafters we came to know, as well as showcase our curatorial instincts for special vintage fashion finds.
We have made it our passion project to create a cohesive style emporium out of a motley assortment of recyled materials. Everything in the shop, from the baseboards to the lighting fixtures to the cash register have been collected, painted and polished to a sparkly shine from sources like the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store. The work of the local artists we carry, be it accessories, perfume, or hand-sewn gowns, all exhibit a commitment to using sustainable materials with innovation.
We our drawn to things that thoughtfully bridge the gap between delicate and daring, and contemporary and classic, and want to present them to you with care. Come in and say hello!
