Our Story - Elisamama

 

My name is Fisayo, I'm a mother of 3 and founder of Elisamama. Elisamama was founded at the intersection of my love for joyful, functional and stylish kids’ clothing and the heart to make a difference in Nigeria.

As a native of Nigeria, I witnessed firsthand the struggle that many face. While talented and eager to work, over 50% of the population are either unemployed or underemployed, and unable to afford the most basic needs for daily life. Elisamama is my contribution towards working on a solution to this problem.  

Through Elisamama, my goal is to build a successful business that creates joyful, stylish, easy-to-wear kids’ clothing while also providing a path towards economic empowerment for Nigerian artisans through jobs and skills training. All of our items are handmade in Nigeria by a team of local artisans. With every purchase, our team of artisans are able to earn consistent income to support themselves and their families. 

While the heart of the business mission is to provide jobs, skills training and consistent income for local artisans, we recognize that we can only accomplish those goals through the success of our core business—making quality kids’ clothing. Our clothes are designed with comfort, function and style at the forefront. When wearing our clothes, I want to ensure that your kids feel confident, look stylish, and can easily transition from
play to party.

We take seriously our commitment to bringing you high value products and a positive experience across every point of interaction with our brand.  Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to get to know us. We are happy that you have joined us on this journey to make a different in the lives of artisans.
