ELKA is a woven textile studio based in Winchester, where textile designer Ellie Fisher produces bespoke hand woven textiles for fashion and furnishing.
Whilst she designs and makes scarves, shawls, baby blankets and cushions, much work is commission based, requests are welcomed, and all projects are considered.
Ellie spent a large part of her childhood living abroad and travelling. The vibrant markets of the Middle and Far East triggered her passion for colour, texture and pattern and this influence is expressed through her textiles.
She completed both her BA in Textile Design, specialising in woven textiles, and MA in Design for Textile Futures at Central St Martins College of Art and Design, graduating in 2006.
After graduating, she moved back to Winchester to set up her weaving business which was run, alongside various other projects, until September 2015 when she made the decision to give weaving her full attention.
