Welcome to Elisabethan…

We’re crazy about recycling! Since 1996, we’ve been committed to making exceptional garments and goodies from all the post-consumer fabric we can get our eager little mitts on. Using laundered second-hand clothing as our “yardage,” we hand-cut each piece using our original patterns, then lovingly combine them into one-of-a-kind items. It’s new, not more. Enjoy — we’re glad you’re here!
