Berkeley, Calif - Eco-friendly home fashions brand Coyuchi has named Eileen Mockus ceo and appointed her to the board of directors.
Mockus most recently served as vp of product for Coyuchi and member of the interim office of the president. Prior to joining Coyuchi, she worked in textile production, sourcing and materials testing for such brands as North Face, Patagonia and Pottery Barn Kids.
She recently spearheaded efforts leading to one of the largest product-line certifications to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), with Coyuchi products produced using fair-labor practices verified by in-country auditors. The home textiles brands' retail presence has been growing at 60% annually, according to the company.
"Eileen has been the driving force in bringing to the market Coyuchi's current product offerings. She is a strong leader with a passion for textile design, a comprehensive knowledge of the production process and a proven record of execution," said said Kevin Brine, chairman of Coyuchi.
"Coyuchi is one of the pioneers in bringing organic cotton home textiles to the market," said Mockus. "It's been such a pleasure to work with Coyuchi on our product assortment and I look forward to sharing our unique textures and organic bedding with our dealers and customers across the country."
