Our Story - Elisamama

 

My name is Fisayo, I'm a mother of 3 and founder of Elisamama. Elisamama was found at the intersection of my love for fun, stylish yet functional clothing and the heart to make a difference in Nigeria. As a native of Nigeria, I am saddened by the struggle that many face - a huge portion of the population, while talented and eager to work, are either unemployed or underemployed, unable to afford the most basic needs - Elisamama is my solution to this problem.  

My goal is to build a successful business that creates fun, stylish, easy-to-wear clothing while providing a pathway towards economic empowerment for Nigerian Artisans through jobs and skills training. All our items are handmade in Nigeria and through that, our team members are able to earn consistent income to support themselves and their families. We also offer free training to those who are interested in joining our team but have no tailoring experience. 

While our social goals are the heart of what we do, we understand that we can only accomplish those goals through the success of our Business. We therefore take very seriously our commitment to high value products and providing a positive experience across every interaction with our brand.  Our clothes are designed with 3 goals in mind: Comfort, Function and Style. When wearing our clothes, I want to ensure that your kids feel confident, look stylish, are comfortable and can easily transition from play to party in the same Elisamama outfit.

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to get to know us. Hope you find something you like and have a positive Elisamama experience!
