￼Ella & Me took its inspiration from Mary & Eric Quarmby, founders of intimate apparel manufacturing company ‘Headen & Quarmby’ in 1935. The brand draws inspiration from founder Mary life and passions and fascination with the intoxicating sound of Jazz, which brought a little mystery and excitement into the bleak days of the Great Depression in the 1930s.
