Elhoffer Design is a Geek-Bound apparel company focused on helping lady-nerds feel amazing and powerful, with the occasional unisex piece for those not as interested in feminine cuts. All our apparel is designed and manufactured in Los Angeles, California. We are proud to keep our productions in the United States and hope you understand that our prices reflect that. Our factory workers are paid minimum wage or more and work in safe conditions; our fabric and yarns are sourced from local vendors who often import them and, thus, are not as cheap as imported fully made apparel. We value quality and fit, and we manufacture in small and often limited runs. When we sell out, we just might be out for good.
Elhoffer Design was founded by Catherine Elhoffer to create higher-end apparel for geeks like her. The geek fashion world is saturated with clothing, but there are still gaps in the market that she hopes to fill by designing and sewing pieces that flatter the body, pulling from modern fashion trends, and helping her fellow geeks of the world to be both stylish and chic. She prefers a subtle geek nod in her designs, using silhouette, color, texture, and lines to tell the story of the character or fandom. Catherine hand-makes sample pieces in her studio, and she designs mass produced pieces and oversees small productions run with her Los Angeles factories.
