NEW SILK JACKETS
OUR FOCUS ON SUSTAINABILITY
Khadi is a handwoven textile that has its origins in ancient Indian traditions. Although Khadi is a newly produced textile, every centimeter we order represents a livelihood for a person and that person's family. Without the production of textiles many people's livelihood would no longer exist - especially in India, a country with a long history of handmade production and craftsmanship.
We want to embrace our Indian partner's skill sets and make it possible for them to continue their traditional forms of work. We want to sustain their lives and the possibility for them to create something completely unique that only they can offer.
That is sustainability to us.
Want to know more about the materials that make up each each Ellies and Ivy collection? Read more about saris, khadi and leftover fabric to get an even better understanding of our brand.
Saris are the traditional Indian silk garment that women wear draped around their bodies. The sari is thought of as the oldest Indian traditional garment and has a long history. Ellies and Ivy want to treasure this amazing piece of garment.
The traditional handwoven khadi textile was a way for Indians to see an end to dependency on foreign rule. We want to use the textile and our new Khadi collection to remind us all of the small things we have in common although we live in a diverse world.
At Ellies and Ivy we have promised ourselves to continuously stay curious, so we
always will have the opportunity to come up with new ideas for collections and
styles. On our last trip to India we discovered the possibility to use leftover fabrics
from our supplier to make exclusive styles.
We want to inspire and be inspired - see the entire selection of journal posts if you wish to learn more about Ellies and Ivy and those who own our styles.

WE ARE ELLIES AND IVY
A brand filled with color, built from a long lasting love for bohemian luxury.
We believe that great style is seasonless and all Ellies & Ivy items are therefore built on the notion of longevity. We have created a line of accessories and clothes that are made to last and can be worn during all seasons.
For Ellies & Ivy perfection is to be found in the pattern play, the fit and the attention to detail. We believe that all women should be wearing clothes that make them feel showered in quality and uniqueness.
From woment to women - we hope you enjoy!
