The inspiration behind Ellery comes from my Grandmother. She was born in Parsons, Kansas into a large family. She grew up saving everything and finding a new way to use it and making clothes for herself and her family. I was always inspired by her creativity and her ability to create these handmade goods and let nothing go to waste. In college I learned about Fair Trade and realized that this was what I had admired about my Grandmother on a larger, Global scale. With this as my inspiration I decided to open Ellery.
