- Elf and ZIP -



It’s 3am and I’m wide awake. Almost 250 miles away from home visiting my mum in Wales. I’m surrounded by three snoring mini me’s and another one tucked into bed beside me feeding.

I’m not sure why our brains turn us into philosophical creatures at this time of night and after questioning everything about my life I’d come to the realisation I was bored of the job I was in and it was time for a change. And after what felt like hours, Elf and Zip was born.

I was raised in a family who instilled a strong work ethic. It is not in my genetics to sit back and take it easy and once the kids go to bed, my trusty sewing machine awakens and I enter the realm of Elf and Zip.
Being a mum of four and surrounded by friends and family who have precious little bundles of their own, I know how hard it can be to buy something that isn’t of a boring ‘seen it before’ quality. Elf and Zip strive to make clothes and accessories for children which are crafted with a unique element and as it’s handmade, you can rest assured the upmost love, care and attention to detail has gone into it’s making.
Our goodies are produced in our very loving family home, in the heart of Cornwall. I adore my work space which allows me to create and search for unique items and materials, sourced from all over the world.
If you would like to personalise your gift box, please email us — elfandzip@gmail.com with your order number and preference after you make your purchase.

We believe it’s the little things that make a big difference.
