Designer and weaver Chelcie Laggis started weaving while dabbling in the textiles department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Once she found the rhythm of the loom, she was transformed by its repetitive, calming motions. So in 2013 she decided to build a business
that goes hand in hand with her minimal aesthetic.
The Elytra Textiles studio is located in the Lincoln Square neighborhood in Chicago, IL.
All of Elytra Textiles products are hand-woven and made with cotton & bamboo - ensuring each piece is ultra soft and ready for a lifetime of wear. We believe in the power of handmade with its ability to support artists and small business, continue an artisan tradition, and offer a unique product.
