Elephantito, a luxury line of clothes and shoes for babies and children up to 10 years old, offers a modern approach to classic children’s wear. Founded by Maria Frallicciardi in 2004, Elephantito is available at more than 150 exclusive boutiques and online stores in US, Europe, Asia and Central America.
At ENK New York I had the opportunity meet with the Elephantito team – Maria and Alexandra, who shared with me what makes Elephantito clothing and shoes for girls & boys so special.
Elephantito is a US-based children’s fashion company that produces the collection in Latin America. The Elephantito story began with Maria who was born in Argentina and moved to the US. Maria set out to create a shoe and apparel brand for girls & boys with a European style that fits the American way of life, meaning easy wear and care – everything is machine washable. Sizes for girls go up to 10 and boys go up to size 6.

Elephantito prints their own fabrics with unique color combinations, meaning you won’t find any brand with the same color combinations. The fabrics are made in Peru, with Pima cotton – including their new Pima cotton layette collection.
We try to adopt a European style to the American way of life. Everything is machine washable. Our shoes are extremely flexible and are as comfortable as sneakers, but they have a European look.
Elephantito started creating shoes 9 years ago and has recently opened their own shoe factory with special machinery imported from Italy. All Elephantito shoes are made of 100% leather, and the insoles are super soft as they are made from sheepskin.
Elephantito is available at more than 150 exclusive boutiques and on-line stores in US, Europe, Asia and Central America.
