ABOUT THE STUDIO

FORWARD FASHION

Studio Elsien Gringhuis is 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 design an ongoing collection which we bundle in “Books”. These books will be complemented regularly by a number of styles. The individual styles remain as long as the fabrics continue to be available.

We follow our own rhythm.

MATERIALS

We work with a divers range of the highest quality and certified fabrics.

SUPPORTING TRADITIONAL SKILLS

We produce 100% in the Netherlands. In our own studio and with the help of skilled tailors. This way we support (local-) craftsmanship, that in many ways is about to be forgotten and stimulate economic growth of the local community.

MADE TO ORDER

All items are produced on order. Which means we never have any stock. In this way we save the environment from over-production.

LOW CARBON FOOTPRINT

By doing the production in the Netherlands, and sourcing all materials as close to home as possible, we save a lot of travel miles and carbon emissions in the production process.
