Nadra Ridgeway
Ellis & Higgs
Nadra Ridgeway lives in a small village nearby Frankfurt, Germany, together with her partner and their little boy. It all started with a handmade gift for a newborn baby: a little elephant with crackle ears and a rattle in its belly. Gradually, the creation of other toys, cushions and baby blankets built the foundation for a whole collection of her own. During parental leave, Nadra decided to become self-employed and founded her label ellis & higgs. Since then, she produces handmade accessories and textiles for babies and children as well as her own sewing patterns and fabric designs. In early 2014 she made her dream come true by opening her own shop and studio. Here she sells her handcrafted goods, as well as fabrics and sewing notions. Being creative has always given her joy and fulfillment and her hope is, that her work will inspire creativity in others.
