The Velvet Egg was hatched in 2014 by Nelson and Vandenberg. 

Creating a multidisciplinary art and design platform, Elle Nelson and Catherine Vandenberg came together to form a playful, diverse and ever growing collection under the exciting brand name The Velvet Egg.  
Catherine and Elle are Storytellers whose combined artistic sensibilities have translated into contemporary and stylish designs. They create for everyone, adults and kids alike.
Inspired by a forgotten era, The Velvet Egg produces products that are luxe, unique and of the highest quality.
