Their sculptural accessories, hand-made leather and ready-to-wear collections define their artful vision while their devotion to ethical practices has endured them as a leader in the practice of responsible innovation for the fashion industry.
ELK was founded on a belief that people are at the heart of every decision when it comes to the creative process, innovation and authentic approach for the brand. Creative Dirctor Marnie Goding's passion for local design and independent, ethcially sourced fashion has created a brand of enduring value.
ELK has bi-annual collections that lean towards natural hues and made from quality raw materials sourced from all over the world. "Elk is undeniably Australian. We design statement collections that are easy to wear, beautifully made and instantly recognisable ... we believe in only wearing what you really love. It is a simple concept really and this is what informs our creative process" ELK Co-Founder and Creative Director Marnie Goding.
Beyond their commitment to great design, ELK has a strong ethical foundation. As a family owned and operated business, there is a great respect for all persons that work within and for the business. All manufacturers are visited numerous times each year where working conditions, company ethics, workers rights and workplace safety are assessed prior to any engagement by ELK. Transparency and honesty are fundamental values upheld across the entire supply chain.
