Owner, designer & print maker
created by our family
- for yours!
Elsie Jayne is an independent line of hand screen printed and handmade organic clothing and accessories created in the heart of Derbyshire, England.
For as long as I can remember I’ve doodled, painted, made random (not always successful) things out of wood, plastic, cardboard – anything! As a child I was convince that I was going to be a creator of wonderful inventions! Little did I know that it would lead me to the wonderful world of screen printing and Elsie Jayne.
I’m a conservationist at heart, always have been. As a child I’d ‘rescue’ poorly wildlife (not always to my mum’s approval!) and take them to Doreen next door who would ‘magically cure’ them with a poultice – I fell for it, every time! I care about our Earth, about our wildlife, conservation and our children’s futures. And it is for these reasons that I thrive to have as little impact on our environment as possible by using organic fabrics.
Although I am a one woman band, I am not completely alone in my journey. I am terrible at photography! Whilst my friend Diana has a keen eye for exquisite photography and she is amazing with children. Diana and I are similar, we are eccentric, creatives and ‘wannabe’ inventors! Also in team ‘Elsie Jayne’ are my family. My husband Martyn makes the coffee (very important!), my children Haydn and Elsie are my creative collaborators! Nothing gets screen printed unless it is with their approval!
