Ellie + Lion is a new organic basic wear range for babies and toddlers. Our collection features soft neutral hues paired with minimal animal motifs and animal inspired prints. We don't follow seasons or trends - we make timeless comfortable pieces that are made to last and can be passed on to siblings or friends.
Our animal motifs are hand drawn and then digitalised to create a clean, geometric effect whilst still depicting the animal's true characteristics. All of our motifs and print patterns are made exclusively for Ellie + Lion.
With functionality a focus, our clothing is designed for easy changing without sacrificing style. The playsuits and sleepers feature two-way zippers, and the bodysuits and sweaters feature snap clips at the neck. The result is a range that is minimal yet functional in design, and comfortable to wear all year round.
We believe that we are responsible as an apparel brand, to limit our footprint on the environment in every way we can. All of our packaging from production house to consumer is now reusable or compostable, and we always choose the most sustainable option for our marketing material where possible. We believe that everyone can make a difference if we are more conscious in how, and what we consume.
We only use the highest quality GOTS certified cotton and dyes in our clothing. Our small factory in Kolkata, India are GOTS certified. Factories that are certified with GOTS (Global Organic Textiles Standard) have to meet high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain in the quality of the fabric and dyes, and also fair trade for it's employees in the workplace. GOTS is recognised as the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres.
You can be assured that when your little one wears Ellie and Lion, the clothing is kind not only to your child's skin, but to the planet as well.
