Our handcrafted products are as beautiful and unique as the individuals who take such pride in making them for you.
Blue Elegance is a social enterprise of ECHO, a nonprofit that offers lifelong support for adults with disabilities.
The mission of ECHO is to empower individuals with disabilities to achieve their optimal level of personal, social, and economic success. We provide skill building, job placement, day support, and transportation. Our services empower individuals to be active members of the community.
ECHO was established in 1974 and began serving adults with disabilities in 1975 by offering vocational training, community integration, and comprehensive disability employment. ECHO provides services from our Leesburg, Virginia facility, as well as on-site at businesses throughout Northern Virginia.
Our products are sold online and can also be found currently at Reston Hospital Gift Shop and very soon, they will be available at Handmade by LMAC.
