Atelier Eleen Halvorsen takes pride in being a slow design atelier where we create our own otherworldly avant-garde universe at our own pace. We welcome clients on appointment basis for an one-on-one customized experience. As a result our garments and objects are hand crafted with the utmost attention to detail and quality, focusing on natural fabrics like silk, leather and wool - with the goal of creating unique investment pieces that our clients will fall in love with and cherish for a long time to come. Our focus is local production, one-of-a-kind pieces, and a high-end made-to-order philosophy.
Leather. Our leather items are made from by-product leather from the food industry, using mainly vegetable tanned leather, which uses the oldest and most intricate process of tanning leather, relying on natural vegetable tannings from tree bark or other plant sources. All of the Eleen Halvorsen molded leather objects are made in-house and are dyed, polished and edge finished individually by hand using only the amount of dye and polish needed, greatly minimizing waste water.
Care and after life. To prolong the life of every garment, as well as leaving a minimal impact on the environment, we encourage our customers to take good care of their Eleen Halvorsen pieces by following the care instructions that is written individually for each piece. Hand wash in cold water rather than machine wash and spot clean whenever possible.
Should one of your old Eleen Halvorsen pieces need repair, we are happy to examine your garment and assess whether we can repair it to prolong its life for you.
