Inspired by Asheville's unique fashion aesthetic, Amanda Boekhout taught herself how to sew shortly after moving to North Carolina from Florida. What began with embroidery and stenciling on t-shirts, has now transformed into her clothing line Elliott Elephant.
Using old clothes Boekhout creates one-of-a-kind pieces that are sold at The Honey Pot and on Etsy.com
Amanda Boekhout has modeled for R.Brooke Priddy and credits Priddy towards inspiring her tailoring and sewing. She will appear in "Sewing the Muse" an Art Seen Asheville production which features the work and collaborations of Priddy.
