Ella Lou aims to inspire a little wanderlust in its customers. Founded in 2012 by Lindsay Thomasson, Ella Lou is deeply inspired by French living, infusing a certain “je ne sais quoi” into their products. Their business philosophy is one of collaboration, philanthropy and environmental stewardship. All of their items are handmade, one piece at a time, using traditional small-production techniques. They aim to forge positive and lasting relationships with their artisans from across the globe, investing in their communities as well as at home, working with other small local businesses whenever possible.  And in every way are looking to minimize their environmental footprint, from sourcing products made from certified organic cotton, to printing their paper products on recycled content paper, using recyclable packaging materials and minimizing materials whenever possible.
