On vosgesparis I always love to show the little gems in the mass of interior design products. Some time ago I spotted an image with cotton rolls stacked on each other, it was love at first site as they reminded me of the antic handwoven rolled up linen bread cloth that belonged to my Sardinian mother in law. It took me some time to find out where these rolls came from and who posted that image, and my search brought me to Ella Hustinx, founder of Elle La.
Made locally with recycled filling
Ella designs all products herself and they are made in collaboration with Atelier Made Here, a studio based in Amsterdam East, where refugee tailors from mainly Syria stitch the pillows together. Ella: “Supporting the local economy by working with a local manufacturer enables us to reduce emissions, and produce on a smaller scale, based on real demand.
