A West Coast, free-spirit vibe underlines every collection at The Elder Statesman, delivering messages of love, unity and humanity. The artisanal lifestyle brand is propelled by founder and surf-enthusiast Greg Chait, as well as a small team of highly-skilled weavers, knitters and dyers. Emerging with a series of rare cashmere blankets in 2007, the luxury label focuses on human craftsmanship, developing a majority of products in their “arts and crafts facility” in downtown LA. Often referencing his grandmother’s art, Chait’s hand-spun pieces weave a watercolor story with cosmic, earthy undertones. Relaxed silhouettes in cashmere, cotton and wool blends are painted in vibrant rainbow colors creating striped, tie-dyed and checkered patterns that radiate positive energy. Knit sweaters and slouchy beanies in various patchwork patterns showcase the brand’s impeccable artistry and commitment to waste elimination through upcycled fabric scraps.
