DUSEN DUSEN

Made in New York, New York

Raised by architects in Washington, DC, Ellen Van Dusen grew up knowing the importance of good design and form following function. In college, through a self-directed major at Tufts University, she studied the psychology of design and the brain's reaction to visual stimuli. After graduating, Ellen founded Dusen Dusen, a line of universally flattering apparel and home d├ęcor basics, driven by the hand-crafted prints she designs each season. Her inspiration is drawn from the far-flung and unexpected, like mid-century resort architecture, Italian industrial design and Scandinavian textiles, though it does not stop there. Dusen Dusen is designed and produced in New York City and redefining American-made one squiggle line at a time.
