Handmade on a Mission

Elise Marie Designs inspires with uniquely hand-crafted designs and a marketplace of local goods. We strive to empower customers to look and feel their best while also supporting female-owned small businesses.  

A Local Vision

In a world of fast fashion and mass production, Elise Marie Designs seeks to take design back to its purest form and empower makers to create and consumers to be inspired by the products they choose. We envision thriving communities filled with local makers who collaborate instead of compete to offer unique and ethically crafted products.
