Our wise old elephant is made from those favourite clothes that your little one has outgrown, as a perfect baby keepsake.
Our elephant has stomped its way to great success. Those clothes are full of memories, you've kept them for ages, now dig them out of the attic and let us create something really special to remember those early days.
All our keepsake animals come beautifully presented in one of our gift boxes and with an accreditation certificate showing the name of the child it was made for and their date of birth.
Please note that as all of our items are handmade from different fabrics there can be a real variation in the appearance of the final product and the end result may not look exactly like the product pictured.
How it works:
Once your order is placed we will dispatch a pre-paid mail bag and order details to your shipping address. When you are ready to send the clothes in just pop them in the mailbag, along with the form and send them back to us via one of the shop locations listed in the details with the mail bag. You need to use the pre paid label within 12 months. If it is not used within that time you can still send us the clothes but you will need to pay for postage separately. Once we receive the clothes it usually takes 4-6 weeks to create an animal keepsake, but we can rush it through in three weeks if you use our express service. We take the utmost care with your irreplaceable items. As mummies ourselves we know how important they are. The cost of postage and personalisation is included in the cost.
Get one for yourself, or make it the perfect gift for new parents, christenings, birthdays or Christmas. Using our gift option we can send out our gift pack so that when parents are ready to part with those clothes they can send them straight in to us.
All our keepsake animals can be personalised with up to 45 characters of embroidery, usually the child's name and date of birth. On the elephant the embroidery appears on the feet.
What we need from you:
You need to send about four items of baby clothing for each keepsake animal. Often this might be babygrows, but it doesn't have to be, they can be made from any clothes. They don't have to be children's clothes either, it could be a beloved grandparent's clothes, bridesmaid dresses etc. If the clothes are larger childrens' sizes or adults then you can send two items. You can send more if you wish, as many of them as possible will be used, but if there are entire pieces of clothing that are unused they will be returned with the completed order.
Obviously the material composition of the elephant varies depending on the items you send us. We use 100% polyester stuffing that is CE tested.
Our keepsake animals are collector items - something for the owner to cherish and remember their little one's early days by. They come packaged in one of our lovely presentation boxes to keep them safe. They are often made from quite old, delicate clothing and are not therefore able to withstand the rough handling of children. These items cannot be CE tested and therefore come with the following warning:
This product is not recommended for use by persons under the age of fourteen years.
We would prefer you spot clean or handwash them. Do not tumble dry.
Our elephant sits at 25cm.
