Little Elephant, co-founded by David and Neha, was born as an ode to Neha’s Indian roots. In the Indian culture, the elephant symbolizes strength, prosperity, wisdom, good luck and protection of the home. It was everything they wanted their new brand to be. The elephant has, for centuries, been a part of folklore, art, culture and royalty – its mighty designs traveling all across the world, taking a piece of Indian heritage wherever it goes. The ‘little’ was added as a token of humility for the first steps the company was taking.
David lived in India with Neha for 8 months after their marriage in 2017. They spent these months traveling the length and breadth of the vast country, giving David a whiff of the grand sensory experience that India is. He realized that there are so many facets of the Indian culture that the world is still deprived of. The intricate art pieces, especially, got them interested. They knew that great art has takers everywhere, and Indian craft needed to travel more.
Little Elephant builds upon the strength of the strong artistic heritage of the Indian craftsmen. Their unique designs are sourced directly from the artistes, ensuring creative excellence at affordable prices for the buyers and maximum economic leverage for the craftsmen who have devoted their lives to the arts. Since each product is hand crafted, these are vastly different from factory-manufactured multitudes that offer little room for personal expression. Offering an extremely wide range of very unique designs, Little Elephant’s high quality products are delivered with the swiftest delivery and happiest customer service.
Little Elephant strives hard to keep the time-honored Indian handicrafts alive in the global market. It provides the Indian tribal communities a platform to thrive and helps their art to travel to the world’s most discerning connoisseurs. Driven by a devotion for the arts and encouraged by the support of its patrons, Little Elephant aspires to stride on with power to even more parts of the world.
