Welcome to The Ikat Elephant

I am so happy you are here. My name is Emilie Phillips Johnston and I’m originally from Brenham, Texas. Good ol’ Blue Bell Ice Cream town. I currently live outside of Dallas with my husband, AJ, and our two little ones, Eli, 6, and Amelia, 4. We have a Lab/German Shepherd, Emmett, who’s like our third child and definitely the family favorite.

In 2023 I was fortunate to purchase the Ikat Elephant from Heidi Parker. Her vision was to have a unique name that embodies fashion and strength. Ikat is a gorgeous fabric pattern from Indonesia and elephants are strong family units that travel in large, female-led herds. The two marry well together and form a name that encompasses both strength and beauty. I invite you to travel in this family of beautiful women, in unique styles chosen by me and you. Thank you for stopping by. Let's shop together!
