Turn your loved one’s favorite clothing into a custom, huggable elephant to honor memories and share with others.
We all know what it's like to miss someone you love who's passed on, or someone who's not near enough to hug as often as you'd like. Our Memory Elephants, uniquely crafted for you from your loved one's clothing, are a tangible, huggable way to honor their memory or keep a part of them close.
They're also a great option for any clothing you've been hanging on to or storing...why not have a Memory Elephant created from your wedding dress, allowing you to see it each and every day and remember that very special moment in your life? Or how about the collection of baby clothes tucked away in the back of your closet? Combine them with a baby blanket for an adorable patchwork Memory Elephant!
Please see below for clothing details, sizes, and pricing. Fabric remnants from your project can be transformed into pillows, herb-filled sachets, and more. Additional images of elephants coming soon!

Clothing & Construction Details
Elephants are lined for stability and double seam stitched for durability (denim is an exception). Snap together plastic eyes are used and once inserted they are nearly impossible to pull apart. Additional reinforcement is also sewn in behind the eyes. There is no extra charge for eyes, trunk, tail, scarves or ribbons. Elephants are available in 2 sizes.
NOTE: Memory Elephants are not recommended for children under 3.
A standard men’s shirt or woman’s blouse typically can be turned into one Medium sized elephant. Pants, bathrobes, dresses, blankets, jackets or just about any other type of clothing can be used, even neckties. Clothing needs to be cleaned prior to sending in for assembling into elephant.
Please let us know if you want fabric remnants returned.
