ABOUT ELLA AND HER PROCESS
I design and make clothes to be worn and weathered. To be passed down by loved ones to those searching for a piece of home to carry with them.
I’m inspired by styles and materials that I come back to time and time again, from the well-worn jackets that stay on the coat rack for all of the family to use, to the oversized shirts I’ve acquired from my Dad.
I use natural materials which breathe and move with our bodies, and design carefully considered styles that provide a cocoon of familiarity and comfort.
With industry experience in London, Worcestershire and Cornwall, it’s the raw, romantic landscape of Cornwall and its people that continue to inspire me. I live and work in Cornwall, and support local businesses with mine. With the help of a sustainable product designer, my blue buttons are 3D printed, from recycled end-of-life Cornish fishing nets. These are hauled into Newlyn and then printed, before being sewn on by me.
These beautiful buttons are the first of their kind and this marine nylon has 97% less environmental impact in comparison to virgin nylon.
My labels are printed by an independent printing press in Penryn. My gift wrapping and packaging are recyclable.
I aim to act as an alternative to fast fashion, and offer positive impact clothing with a small and transparent cycle. You can be confident your garments are hand made by me with love and attention to detail.
The nature of my process allows me to offer an inclusive, bespoke service, making adjustments and alterations for all bodies.
I’d love to create the perfect piece for you, which you’ll wear to live, before you hand it down for new experiences.
