ABOUT THE STUDIO
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 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.
We work with a diverse range of the highest quality and certified fabrics.
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.
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.
STUDIO | SHOP | SHOWROOM
Studio Elsien Gringhuis was one of the first labels that no longer produced in advance, but only on order. We wanted to offer a counterbalance to the crazy overproduction in the fashion industry. In October 2019 we opened our own STUDIO | SHOP | SHOWROOM in the Arnhem Fashion Quarter (Modekwartier). The shop is also based on the same principle. The customer orders the clothing that they want, after which the production team gets to work. It is specially made for each customer and within five to ten days the new item can be picked up.
