Having grown up with three brothers, Ellen Stryker learned the value of independence from a young age. She spent our summer days playing on Nauset; the salty waters curing anything and everything. At 20, Ellen moved out to Jackson Hole for what would be her first summer out west. The Tetons have a peculiar way of showing you your highest highs, and lowest lows; similar to Mother Ocean’s waves. The ups and downs of nature, whether it be within mountain peaks and valleys, are a direct analogy to living; and that is how she chooses to view my life.
Ellen has always been enamored by textiles. She started selling hand-printed tees for $5 in college to fund her “tuition” and have since fallen down the wormhole of experimental natural dyeing and stitching. Currently, she is working on slow process, small batch clothing made with intention and packed with love. Ellen's work is an evolving process; a constant wave train of inspiration through music, the natural world, and interactions.
