Know your elephant, from your ellyfante?
Thats us in a nutshell! We are Elephants.
Though we can't pull it off that much weights around our bellies and still manage to look cool, but other than that, we are close or atleast we are trying to be close to these truly awesome beings.
FUELED BY COMPASSION
We are a close family of compassionate and driven people that strive to deliver quality, value and honesty at every step of the way
Ellyfante, is our baby!
We pride ourselves on our values, our products and our attention to detail. We spend a lot of time in creating a valuable experience for our customers. We believe in charm, friendliness and that special bond that we all are born with. And sometimes a healthy dose of humour, we take utmost pride in our work, but don't take ourselves too seriously :-)
Our search for organic and sustainable fabric for our kids got us here. Our first hand experiences taught us that choosing the right fabric for baby's clothing and accessories matters more than style. We found the whole process super complex - be it the Baby Products aisles in supermarkets or shopping online. It's gotten way too confusing and most of the products are not the same as described. Well done!
It started as an idea of a range of products (not the whole portfolio but focus on a set of daily use items at a time). We read and read some more. We attended seminars; listened to talks and visited trade shows to try and get into the minds of the so called genius 'Brands'.
Yes, there are a lots of other brands that do what we do. Half not compassionate enough to serve you and some don't present you with an item that they promised it would be. Surprise! Ta-dah!
Surprised we were, and a little angry too. It can't be that difficult surely!
Fast forward a year or so.. one of us decided to answer the call of compassion and make the jump and called quits on the conventional day job to focus on research. We've been taking baby steps since to become a specialised boutique brand. Eventually, with some invaluable feedback from family and friends – we welcomed the newest member in our midst: Ellyfante!
WE ARE SERIOUS ABOUT DELIVERING GREAT VALUE.
WE BELIEVE EXPERIENCE OF A SPECIAL GIFT SHOULD BE JUST THAT. SPECIAL!
We are all in, completely, with our minds and hearts, creativity and honesty, simplicity and authenticity, set out to connect people with what matters the most - experience! It started with a simple idea, and our mission still remains the same. To bring high quality, well designed products that we would want to experience ourselves.
TO THE GREENS AND BACK
"Down-To-Earth" is literally our mantra when it comes to designing our products. The seed of organic & sustainable fabric was planted very early in our heads, by Dylan (gets it from his uncle Dee, you see)
We listened and prodded to & fro with the idea for a while as part of our research. Afterall, mother nature has the best crayons they say. We wondered, so why add unnecessary chemicals to that. Hence, at Ellyfante, all our products are purpose built with nature in mind. The products are designed from the ground up with how it feels on human skin as their focus.
Our commitment to our purpose wouldn't set us free until one more piece in the puzzle was fixed: The packaging. During the summer, Dylan took it upon himself to explore different options.
The proud moment came when we first launched our range of Eco-Packs in the autumn of 2018.
Our unique Eco-Packs contains OEKO-TEX® certified Organic Bamboo products, packaged in a fully recyclable and carbon neutral bags that are made from Sugarcane extracts, while our brand stickers are made of paper and printed in the UK using food grade ink.
Our aim is to have everything produced from natural and certified organic resources as much as possible. We trust only the best and hence all the raw materials sourced come strictly from industry certified mills. The bamboo fabric manufacturers we work with are all inspected and certified by OEKO-TEX®
