    Wow such beautiful unique jacket and I love it. Just like the description described and more. Also Ellen had hand written a personal thank you card to me which was very impressive. I will go back and order another jacket for sure. Thanks again Ellen I appreciate you and your business. 😊😊😊😊😊

    Ellen Walker Designs was fabulous to work with! She was very responsive and totally got my vision for the jacket. She was very timely and the jacket came in perfect timing. I love the look of it and can't wait to wear it on my wedding day. I'd highly recommend! This is also a great price, I shopped around and Ellen had the best jackets for the best value.

    Ellen was one of the best sellers I’ve worked with on Etsy! And I’m an Etsy seller too! From the moment I contacted her about my idea for my jacket, she was super responsive and listened to all my ideas. She provided me with a sketch of how the design would look, even before I paid her for the listing. She also provided the jacket for me, which took a huge weight off my shoulders of finding the right one. She found the PERFECT one for me! She uses upcycled jackets, but you would never know! My jacket looks and feels brand new! The packaging, design, and even the handwritten note that came in my package were all amazing! Ellen is just an amazing person to work with. She takes huge pride in her work and you can tell she loves what she does. I would recommend Ellen to anyone! I will be ordering again!

One-of-a-kind wearable art.

I love illustration and design and am inspired by the natural world, cultures around the world, and sustainable fashion. I decided to transform iconic garments like the denim and leather jacket into unique pieces of art handmade by me! Each jacket is up-cycled, salvaged, and painted with high quality materials to last. I hand select beautiful washes and shades of denim, faux suede and vegan leather. Each design is completely different and tailored to your custom vision! I love seeing photos of my custom jackets on fashionistas, world travelers, girl bosses, brides, artists, friends and family. Please message me with your ideas so I can create a beautiful piece for you!
