MAXIMIZE THE MINIMUM
Studio Elsien Gringhuis is a high-end, sustainable label with a focus on the essence of clothing. Timeless, clean, chic and minimalistic, with innovative details. High end products with quality in cuts, fabrics and finish.
We no longer create completely new collections every season but design a basic collection which we call “Books”. These books will be complemented regularly by a number of styles, so-called “Chapters”. The individual items remain as long as the fabrics continue to be available. We follow our own rhythm.
The focus is on highly innovative patterns reducing the waste to the max.
Elsien is passionate to introduce new definitions for craftsmanship and sustainability.
To stimulate local craftsmanship, we produce 100% in the Netherlands.
“A functional and well thought out design makes me very happy.
All good things are simple, but there is nothing more difficult than
to make a good and simple design.”
