“Clothing is fun, functional and a factor in all cultures, often demonstrating religious affinity, political inclination, social standing, and mystical beliefs. Freedom to express ourselves in the way we clothe our bodies brings forth a myriad of human expressions and invigorates this colorful tableau of life. It is essential that we present ourselves in our communities, on our small but numerous stages, with a presence that resonates personal style, beauty, truth, and perseverance towards the goals of peace and human dignity….”

“I have been wearing Elven Velvet for thirteen years and still have original pieces.
The styles are classic and comfortable. Being able to launder and dry them makes
them easy to care for. The fabric is light enough for our Texas winters but still practical for Colorado!”
