It's always exciting to find modern, fun multicultural swag for kiddos. When I first saw Ellie Elote's collection, I had to have one of the "I Love My Papi" shirts for my daughter. You can see her rocking it in the photo above.
I just love it. And I'm so excited about this giveaway. I've been wanting to share these goods with you for a while. And now, you can win your own Ellie Elote shirt or onesie!
First, a little about Ellie Elote, founded by Lisa, a graphic designer who grew up in Canada. Her Guatemalan-Mexican husband came to the States at a young age, and they met while studying abroad. He was living in Miami, and now they live in Detroit, Michigan. (Don't you just love all this global journeying?)
They are raising a bilingual two-year old, and it didn't take long for Lisa to notice the lack of Spanglish clothing options. Given her graphic design background, she decided to start her own company. She designs all of Ellie Elote’s products herself, and they are printed in Detroit, Michigan on ethically manufactured apparel.
Bonus? Ellie Elote has a heart for Guatemala. A portion of every purchase is donated to Mayan Families’ Well Mother, Well Baby Program.
So if you want to check out Ellie Elote or connect with Lisa on social media (I love her Instagram!), here are some muy important links:
