WHAT THE HECK IS AN "ELLYGEH"?
MAKING STORIES YOU CAN WEAR
My name's Elly. I am an 80's born kid who grew up in the 90's. I was (and still am) in love with that era of cartoons, anime, music, games, and dumb stuff.
As a teenager, I fell in love with skateboarding. I considered myself a skateboarder, although I wasn't very good at it. I was always intrigued by skateboarding culture and how fashion (or anti-fashion) is portrayed in the skate community and how it has changed in the last decade.
My current vision is to unite my love of the aesthetic of the 80's and 90's into today's skate fashion with my art and stories in clothing.
The clothing I create is all about the story. Story is in everything in our lives, it's what teaches us, what motivates us, what inspires us. It's sometimes very conscious and most of the time very unconscious.
The stories I want to tell are relatable stories in casual street wear, expressed through illustrations and/or patterns. I'd like to tell stories about nostalgia, about belonging, friendship and about doing the hard work to achieve your goals and dreams in life.
You're not gonna find really edgy and hateful stuff here. What you will find here though is a lot of celebration of the 80's and 90's culture, hard work, dedication, and a lot of Love & Respect (To quote and steal straight from the Easy Allies).
It's all about inclusiveness and being jolly. Except when you're a jerk. If you're a jerk, you will be called out (with respect) so you can become better. Because nobody wants to be around jerks.
All the shirts here are ringspun, combed, all natural cotton. If that sounds like gibberish to you, it just means that the shirts I use are soft, comfortable, breathable, and smooth compared to most shirts out there. Yes, you will be paying more, but you'll also be getting a better quality shirt and print. I am not willing to sell you cheaper clothing and sacrificing the quality of what I do.
STILL, WHAT DOES "GEH" MEAN?
I could say that GEH is an abbreviation for something fancy, or is an expression of a yell joy that represents what I'm all about.
But honestly, it's just a stupid thing My buddy Guigo and I used to yell at each other when teenagers, after watching a South Park episode with a Christina Aguillera dog creature Cartman saw when on Ritalin:
