I love to recycle vintage fur into beautiful, useful and lovable treasures. What better way to respect and extend its extraordinary beauty and spirit?
I handmake detachable knit hat pom poms, earmuffs, shoe pom poms, handbags, key chain purse charms, pillow covers and teddy bears.
Not wanting to waste the smallest of pieces, I also make fur jewelry and scrunchies, hair clips.
I also offer faux fur versions of my handmade real fur items, in most of my product lines.
My hand-knit hats are warm and comfortable, in classic designs and a variety of colors.
I'll do my best to fill any custom order, so if you have a special idea, hit me up and I'll make it happen!
I've always been a slave to everything vintage -- from music and clothing, to jewelry and art. I love the "old days," and the painstaking care that was put into the craft of every art. That's what started me here.
I founded elle Vintage in 2012, during my career in the legal marketing field. elle Vintage began as a passion that I indulged in, in my off-hours with my Etsy shop.
As my sales grew, I found myself more invested in my true passion. In 2015, I left the legal world behind and I've been all about elle Vintage, all the time, devoting myself to my art and my thousands of happy customers!
I'm a painter, graphic artist, barber, seamstress and general jack-of-all-trades.
I love this work.
Recycle - Renew - Revive!
Vintage Fur. Let's breathe new life into beautiful, unique treasures from the past.
All of my handmade real fur creations are made from vintage fur coats that have, for the most part, been around longer than most of us have been around.
They are a resource going to waste unless someone uses them. I work tirelessly, skillfully, passionately and lovingly, to transform this resource into works of art that you will treasure for many more years to come.
Visit often -- I usually list new merchandise every day!
