    Eloïse Ptito-Echeverria is a textile and apparel designer currently based in Montreal. Driven by intelligent print and ethical design, she possesses a particular penchant for textiles, embroidery, and colour. After completing her Fine Arts degree in 2011, she lived in Santiago, Chile for a year where she trained in Rococo hand-embroidery and Shibori. She also studied Precolombian-Andina textiles at l’Universidad Catolica de Diseño.

     All of these experiences have collectively impacted her aesthetic vocabulary, resulting in a heavily art-based design ethos that insists upon embedding her work with the empowering qualities of colour, the textile practices of her mixed heritage, and the emotional recycling of personal materials. Paying very little attention to current fads, her ultimate goal is to create soulful heirloom pieces that will be passed down from generation to generation. She is a graduate of the Ryerson Fashion Design Program and was most recently awarded Brettons’ Designer of the Year.
