About ELSA AND ME
The elegance that garments by ELSA AND ME exude are molded after that portrayed by founder Maja Svensson’s Grandma Elsa. The made-to-order garments are hand-sewn in NYC's garment district using organic cotton twill fabric and can be customized to fit any shape. There are two versions of the ELSA dress available, the original 3/4 sleeve ELSA and the recently launched sleeveless ELSA. The ELSA tie and both variations of the ELSA dress are available in nine colors: Dusty Black, Vanilla White, Midnight Blue, Power Red, Sunny Wheat, Sweet Potato, Butter Cream, Hibiscus and Berry. ELSA AND ME garments are sold exclusively online or through designated sales ambassadors. Garment recipients should allow 2-8 weeks for delivery.
About By Natalie Frigo
Natalie Frigo's passion is creating unique, heirloom jewelry that treasures the extraordinary beauty in every client. Sculpting all of the designs by hand in her lower Manhattan studio, Natalie personally attends to each detail using the ancient practices of metalsmithing and 'cire perdue' (also known as lost-wax casting). The organic forms are then handcast and finished using only recycled metals and personally selected, ethically sourced gemstones. All work, every step of the way, is done in New York City. Natalie's inspiration ranges from early metallurgy and textile design to recent architectural developments, culminating in a collection that is contemporary, but by referencing venerable artifacts, also feels timeless.
About Knotty Gal
As the brainchild of NY-based mother-daughter duo Nur-E Gulshan Rahman and Nur-E Farhana Rahman, Knotty Gal is the producer of one-of-a-kind knotted, handmade accessories for a cause. Delightfully “knotty” by nature, the line is equally as “nice” in purpose as the idea sprang up from the founders’ desire to raise funds for an all girls' school in Bogra, Bangladesh. The institution, the Bhandari Girls' School, was founded in 1962 by Nur-E Farhana’s great-grandfather and was the first all-girls school in the region. Visiting the school in 2011 and taking heed of the dismal shape it was in, Nur-E Farhana and her mother decided to combine their creative passions with their desire to help and fashioned an accessories line that would resonate with knotty gals everywhere. A portion of all Knotty Gal proceeds directly benefits the Bhandari Girls’ School.
