Eileen Mockus, Coyuchi
Eileen Mockus is CEO of Coyuchi, where luxury linens and apparel are crafted using only the finest organic, sustainably made fibers. Mockus learned about entrepreneurship first-hand while developing new products for The North Face and Patagonia, and honed her business development and branding skills at Pottery Barn Kids and PB Teen. She represents Coyuchi on the Fiber Council for the Organic Trade Organization, and is a member of the board for Accelerating Circularity, a collaborative industry project formed to establish systems for reducing textile waste. She is also the board chair of the Chetna Coalition — an ethical textile and fashion value chain community — which works to organize and align the demand of buyers and manufacturers to support the growth and development of Chetna’s Organic farming community.
