Ellen Bruxvoort is the designer and maker behind FIBROUS, a modern textile and accessory brand based in Austin, Texas. Founded in 2014, Ellen is forever finding the balance between fun, classy, statement, and comfortable. Using natural materials like wool, cotton, linen, hemp, copper, and rose gold, FIBROUS focuses on functional goods, jewelry and art for boutiques and individuals all around the world. Each piece is designed and produced by hand in our sunny Austin studio 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.
