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.
