One Nine Eight Five is a sustainable British design studio creating unique textiles, home furnishings, and bespoke commissions and collaborations made within the UK. They place emphasis on products that are locally made, good quality, unique, and are made to last. The brand was created in 2016 by Eleanor Nadimi.
After working in the fast fashion industry, Eleanor Nadimi created One Nine Eight Five with the goal to to create unique pieces that work to close the loop on waste without compromising on design. She also desired to empower the community around her to create the homes that bring them joy.

Each piece is carefully designed and created in the studio by Eleanor, and manufactured by British craftsmen in the UK. One Nine Eight Five's Women collection is designed and dedicated to raising awareness for the UK charity 'Beat', with 15% of all sales from this collection donated to this cause.

The throws made by One Nine Eight Five are crafted with either recycled cotton or recycled wool, using off-cuts from garment making factories. These are broken down into fibre, then re-spun into yarn, woven and hand-finished using traditional techniques in British mills. This bridges the fashion and interior industries together, creating a wider circular economy.

Since featuring on podcasts and industry panellist talks, Ele has become a new voice for mindful manufacturing, ethical practice and education within both the fashion and lifestyle industries. She mentors at the University of Arts London, and The Advisory & Ele has found a style that follows her artistic taste and love for maximalism, understanding the importance of a joyful home.
