Guess what! This year Elisabethan celebrates 20 years of providing recycled, reinvented & repurposed clothing for people just like you!

Since 1996, long before the eco-fashion revolution, Elisabethan’s founder and creator, Elisabeth Delehaunty, has been committed to making exceptional garments & goodies from all the post-consumer fabric she could get her paws on.

Even before 1996, Delehaunty was scouring thrift & vintage store for materials in her hometown of Worcester, Massachusetts… Ask her about her prom dress from 1989…

Elisabethan officially began in a teeny studio in Crested Butte, Colorado, with owner Delehaunty selling pieces at juried art fairs all across the U.S. In 2000, Elisabethan moved to Paonia, Colorado. Delehaunty eventually expanded to a larger studio & hired a hand-picked, dedicated team to help with the growing demand for Elisabethan.

20 years later, Elisabethan goodies have been found in over 100 stores nationwide. This spring we even opened up a flagship store, called Refinery. Refinery is located on Grand Avenue, only a short walk from the Elisabethan studio, in a 100-year old building that used to house Paonia’s library.
