elephriends is a creator of limited edition, handmade, boutique art toys. A creative endeavor of conceptual art, branding, and product design, elephriends offers an alternative platform for fashion designers, illustrators, and artists to not only express themselves - but to also make an impact in the world we call home.
We are a group of creatives who want to create a place where art, design, and environmental issues meet. Aiming to motivate and lead others towards lives of environmental consciousness and stewardship, we elicit conversation using innovative and creative ways.
Most importantly, we want to make you feel. That feeling that makes you want to dive deeper and explore. We want you react. Good or bad, but never indifferent.
Handcrafted using scrap fleece material sourced from a local art supply store. After many iterations and brainstorming, we decided to take a bit of a more traditional approach to the design of this elephriend. Features a soft, plush fleece body with posable tusks.
