    Fabulous eco-friendly garments

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!

Harvest Time

But it’s harvest time around our neck of the woods in Paonia and THIS weekend is Mountain Harvest Festival.  It’s a great time to be here—-tour farms, go to wineries for tastings, more »

Creative chaos

Fall production is well underway and we can’t help but share some of the deep delicious colors we are working with… Here it’s RUFFLE TEE GLOVES—-we are making them with double ruffles now (at fingers AND wrist).  WE LOVE the creative chaos of combing colors!               more »
