PANELIST
Eileen Mockus, CEO of Coyuchi
Growing up in a household where her mother and five sisters all sewed, Eileen Mockus has been passionate about textiles as long as she can remember. Eileen pursued a bachelor of science in textile and clothing from the University of California, Davis, and a master of science in business administration, with an emphasis on small business and entrepreneurship, from San Francisco State University. Eileen learned about entrepreneurship first-hand while developing new products for the North Face and honed her business development and branding skills at Pottery Barn Kids and PB Teen. At these and other iconic brands, such as Patagonia, she made use of her deep knowledge of the technical side of the textile business, working in fabric development, materials testing, product development and sourcing. She first became interested in organic cotton and improved processing for textiles while visiting manufacturing facilities in Europe and Asia. The challenge of making high-quality products in a way that is respectful to the people who make them, as well as to the earth, drew her to Coyuchi and helps guide her vision for the company as we grow.

PARTNERS
Golden State Cider
The cidery started in 2012 on a small organic apple farm in Northern California and the golden liquid was sold exclusively at Bay Area Farmer’s Markets for the first couple of years. Soon, cider making became a full-time obsession for the compnay and Golden State Cider was born from the same ethos that they started with: great cider starts with quality fruit. 
Ritual Coffee Roasters
Ritual has been a pioneer in a delicious shift in coffee consciousness since they opened their doors on Valencia Street in 2005 and started what some call a coffee revolution in San Francisco. Their goal then--and their goal now--is to craft the very best cup of coffee available anywhere. Period. They've learned a lot over the years, but the care and attention they lavish on their process is unchanged, including tasting every coffee several times before it goes out to our coffee bars and into your cup.
