Ellen Bruxvoort is the designer and maker behind FIBROUS, a modern textile and accessory brand in Austin, Texas. Forever finding the balance between fun, classy, statement and comfortable, Ellen works with natural materials like wool, cotton, linen, hemp, and copper to create wall art, functional goods and fiber jewelry for shops and individuals all around the world. Each piece is designed and produced by hand with a confident, intentional consumer in mind.
The name, FIBROUS, is derived from the South African philosophy of Ubuntu, which translates, "I am because we are." In English, a fibrous object has inherent strength due to the nature of its individual parts working together as a whole. In short, FIBROUS symbolizes a hope for interconnectedness and support between a maker and their community, allowing life as an artist to not only be possible, but sustainable.
