SUNSHINE YELLOW 
Sunshine Yellow embodies everything about summer we love. The warm yellow tones create a golden honey glow that will effortlessly brighten up your look. Add a spring to your step as you saunter to the park this summer with a colour that keeps shining even after the sun goes down.
Love on the braid: Box braid bob for the 3 day heatwave – perfect.


LAVENDER 
Lavender is an absolute must have shade if you’re after something versatile and neutral but still want that pop of colour. The dusty lilac tone is an ethereal delight and can be styled to match your mood whether it’s oversized and grungy streetwear, mythical fairy being or soft and sleek loungewear. 
Anything goes: Any outfit, any hair, any combo, whatever it is it WORKS x


ACID GREEN
Acid Green is alive and it’s electric. Splash this zingy lime green tone through your hair to create a grungier vibe and inject some extra edge. This shade is striking enough to turn some heads yet is super wearable and can be styled up or down depending on what character you are that day. 
It’s easy being green: Rockin Acid Green bantu knots.

BABY PINK
Baby Pink is there for you for when you’re feeling cutesie (think braided pigtails) but has your back when you’re exuding bad bitch energy (high braided pony). This cherry blossom colour provides the perfect balance between a delicate and dainty shade that still packs a pink punch. 
Pink to make thy self wink: Braided pigtails or a braided ponytail?

BUBBLEGUM BLUE
Bubblegum Blue is for when you’ve got energy to match the hair. Bold and up 4 ANYTHING. Make your style pop by getting creative with this sugary sweet aqua blue shade. 
Head in the clouds: Couple cute space buns on ya head.


GREY
Grey is just a true Classique (chef’s kiss). She’s elegance, she’s grace!

E&F

We talk to young hearted humans about everything from sex, to relationships and drugs to self care. Life isn't about shying away from topics that affect our young people, it's about creating safe spaces where we don't judge one another. An earth when we all strive to do better and leave it better than when you found it. We're not perfect as a company nor as individuals, but we are constantly striving to learn and grow and we want to help all of our community do the same. It's our responsibility to help the Elsie and Fred community feel more empowered, more free, more confident and more themselves. 

We are pro black, pro gay, pro liberal, pro human, pro be what the hell you want to be as long as you're being nice. If you're not vibing the message, we're not the company for you. We will never stay silent on things are matter to us and will continue to support the ones who are marginalised on this earth.

Manufacturing

E&F predominantly work with a factory in Guangzhou, China. Our factory is owned by a lady called Ashley and her husband Simon. After we've designed the pieces in our heads we will fly out to Guangzhou to choose fabrics and meet with Ashley who we will tell about our collection idea. We talk what didn't go so well last collection and what went great. After a cup of coffee and a chat Ashley will take us around the fabric markets in search of newness. We're super lucky that we get to work with a really forward thinking factory as she always wants to show us the new production methods and is up to speed on greener efforts to be more sustainable across the world. We're working to being alot more sustainble this year and have made actions to work with recyclable material where possible and long may this continue. The factory we work with is really important to us and Ashley's factory is Sedex certified, which stands for Supplier Ethical Data Exchange. We've got a lot of work to do to improve E&F's footprint but we will continue to improve wherever possible. We've ensured that everything is fuly vegan and we're striving to try and eridicate any single use plastic.

Sustainability 

We are working on reducing plastic across the company as much as possible, this has started with re-usable mailing bags and will be moving into using compostable mailing bags in 2021.

We are also trying to work with recycled fabrics as much as possible to heavily reduce our footprint. All of our clothing and dye's used in our clothing are vegan and we're super personally passionate about the future of the sustainability of our company. We're far from perfect at the moment but we are always working on it and will be sure to keep you updated here.
