WHY YOU SHOULD BUY THIS?
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.
We work with the highest quality of mostly natural fibres. Appr. 80% of our materials are certified with GOTS, Oekotex or at least fair-trade. Some fabrics we use, are produced with GOTS guidelines without certification, because it would make the fabric too expensive.
SUPPORTING TRADITIONAL SKILLS
All items are produced in our own studio in The Netherlands by Elsien herself and with help of skilled tailors, who were trained by Elsien. This way we support (local) craftsmanship, that in many ways is about to be forgotten and stimulate economic growth of the local community.
EXCELLENT WORKING CONDITIONS
All tailors get fair pay for their work. The working relationship with the co-workers is close, transparent and open. Elsien knows them all personally.
REDUCING WASTE TO THE MAX
Elsien focuses on highly innovative patterns, reducing waste to the max.
All items are produced, on demand, not before you order them. Which also saves the environment from overproduction.
LOW CARBON FOOTPRINT
By doing all the production in Holland, and sourcing materials as close to home as possible, we save a lot of travel miles and carbon emissions in the production process.
This product does not contain any animal material or any by-product derived from animals
To avoid any unnecessary over-production, we only produce on order. This means we will start to make your garment as soon as we receive the payment. It will take approximately 5-10 work days to produce your garment. Orders are shipped within 10 days unless you order something from the limited editions section of the shop. This will take 1-3 work days. If you have any questions, feel free to send us an email to webshop[@]elsiengringhuis.com
