Learn more about Welcher and her artistic inspirations.

Parliament the Boutique recently opened on South Division. The brick and mortar store is the home to Littlewings Designs, handcrafted by Elyse Marie Welcher. Welcher wants to provide her community with a transparent studio boutique for production and purchasing of Littlewing Designs.  

Her products are handmade of fine leathers and 100% organic hemp materials. Welcher fills custom orders of items hand-tailored for her customers, what Welcher refers to as "bespoke orders." She also has her staple products sold at the boutique. Each handcrafted design is treated as a piece of art, adding to the unique quality of Littlewings Designs.

Parliament the Boutique will be hosting Collective Wings free fibers classes focused on crocheting, knitting and loom weaving starting Monday July 8 with a social gathering from 7-9 p.m. Classes will run every Monday and Thursday until Artprize. Attendees can expect to create pieces for the Division Fibers Artprize project.

Those down on Division will notice her storefront window by the paper cranes- and might even manage to catch a glimpse of her cats.
