Eleanor Stanton or Ellie is a designer with more than twelve years experience in interiors, textiles, branding solutions and home accessory design.
After graduating from Glasgow School of Art, Ellie travelled across the globe with her craft. It was her Masters in Textile Digital Printing that finally exposed her to the rapidly growing Indian market. She expanded her skills to marketing, communication and sales within the textile business in India, with an aim to interface with the clients across the globe and interpret their needs. Crossing borders honed her experience and led to her developing a sensibility that reflects in all her work.
In 2005, she made India her permanent home and expanded her portfolio to interior design. She worked with a bespoke luxury travel company, Shakti Himalaya that is spread across the Himalayas in Ladakh, Sikkim and Uttrakhand. It was here that she combined her appetite for style with the sustainable crafts that flourished in rural India. Her approach to her work moved to a creative expression that allows commissions for local artisans who work with indigenous materials for the remote locations that she furnishes. She works tirelessly with local communities and families to bring about a meaningful change in their lives. Ellie has a strong desire to revive and integrate local crafts and materials into her projects. The portfolio thus far is 14 properties in the Himalayas.
But finally, it is her commitment, hands on approach and empathy to the needs of her clients and vendors alike that have given Ellie the title ‘Designerdidi’ across the mountains. ‘Didi’ in Hindi means ‘older sister’, an affectionate title that best expresses her approach to her work and personality.
