Our Story

Ellibeth is a high-end Swedish fashion brand by Maria Fristedt and Sofie Elden Merli Sala.

Our journey started 2014 in Italy where we both lived (and still do!). Maria had moved to Italy from London after graduating in International Business, and Sofie had just finished her degree in patternmaking and design in Milano. We are both very alike and share the same visions, so a partnership was perfect with our different backgrounds and knowledge in the field.

Our focus is to create beautiful tops and dresses to wear from day to night. The production is based in Italy, and we keep it here because we want to ensure and maintain the high standards of our clothing. By working close together with the best professionals in the industry and hand-picking the finest fabrics directly from suppliers, we can truly stand behind every piece that we create.

Our dresses are feminine, romantic and edgy and materials that we love and often work with are crêpe, silk, lace, cotton, wool and cashmere. If you are familiar with Ellibeth and our products, you might know that we have two lines: Ellibeth Collection and Ellibeth Exclusive.
In Ellibeth Collection you will find pieces that you can wear both day and night, clean and romantic designs while always keeping the signature Ellibeth style with particular cuts and details. The pieces in Ellibeth Exclusive are all limited edition styles in beautiful fabrics and 100% handmade. They are voluminous, flowing, heavy and luxurious, designed for special occasions such as weddings, galas, evening events, or when you feel that you just want to dress up.

We love our work and what we do, and we love the whole process from the first sketch, to finding the perfect fabric, to making samples and then produce it to have it end up in your closets all over the world. It’s not only about the actual pieces that we make, it’s so much more. We love all our Ellibeth girls and connecting with you and knowing that you love and use our pieces.
