Elsa & Winnie brings together a love of vintage, art and fashion to create beautiful, authentic gifts for the home with a contemporary twist where the product is constantly evolving to make it relevant in today's marketplace.
Founded by a London College of Fashion graduate, E&W is named after two Great Grandmother's who came from very different cultures. One raised in Germany and the other in East London. This concept of contrast is explored throughout the ranges where we mix retro references such as recycled materials and vintage dictionaries and combine them with modernised techniques. We explore juxtaposition; experimenting with various media ranging from traditional black/white fonts contrasting against a bold, neon colour palette.
This forms the essence of our Personalised Typography range and each unique design in the collection is carefully hand selected from the most relevant literature. Handmade-to-order prints with word meanings relating to subjects of your choice whether it be for a friends birthday with buzz words referring to their personality or a wedding anniversary relating to the special memories you’ve shared.
The power of words and literature are extremely rare in an increasingly digitally enhanced world. We aim to re-invent original print from the traditional English Language in a quirky, playful way.
