All the products have been handmade for you so that each piece is unique and this is why!
Elwood & Violet were trained in Art and have extensive knowledge of garment construction and manufacture, but their two talents have now combined as they see them selves as still being Artists but there chosen media is fabric and textiles.
Some of the designs have been manufactured in a way to fray over time to give the piece a distressed look that is associated with the shabby chic style.
The fabrics that have been chosen are from several sources, some vintage, some off cuts bought whilst on trips aboard and sample lengths from manufacture. All of the fabrics that have been used are limited and unfortunately we are unable to reproduce or replicate any of the products that we sell making this product truly “one of a kind”.
We hope you enjoy your purchase as much as we enjoyed making it.
Elwood & Violet

Fabrics–The Fabrics that have been used, have been acquired from a number of sources:
Some of the fabrics are Vintage made and manufactured as far back as the 1960’s and have been put by for a special project were there beauty can once again be admired.
Some of the fabrics are Sample Lengths from industry, the fabrics have been developed in the hope of going into production to make garments from, but for one reason or another, “usually that the cost to mass manufacture such prints was to high for the budget”. They have been rejected never to see to been seen again...... Until now!
And some are off cuts from projects past, to pretty to be discarded and have been saved for that special time.
All our fabrics are limited and are unable to bought or sold again, once what we have has been used there is no more.
Some of the designs have been manufactured in a way to fray overtime to give the piece a distressed look that is associated with the shabby chic style.
