Maternity Occasion wear

However, for those mothers who choose to breastfeed, we want to make it a little bit easier for them. At JIVA we feel you don’t need to compromise style for functionality or practicality. As a brand we aim to support mothers who wish to breastfeed by filling the huge gap in the Indian clothing market for breastfeeding friendly ethnic wear. Having said that, the JIVA community is for all mothers, regardless of how you choose to feed your baby and we use our platform to create a supportive community for all mothers. We’d love your support and would love for you to join us on this journey of creating a supportive community for all mothers.

Yellow Elephants Co
I have always lived by my motto of giving gifts that have meaning, rather than giving something or anything simply for the sake of doing so! The feeling of giving a gift that evokes excitement and joy in the recipient and seeing their face light up when they open it is one of the best feelings. Over the years I’ve loved supporting small businesses with my personal gifting needs and have purchased a wide range of beautiful gifts and keepsakes from those small businesses. However, at times I felt there was something missing and, coming from a vibrant Asian background, I wanted to find meaningful gifts that really stood out and spoke to my ethnicity too. I decided to create something that filled the gap and, with a little inspiration from my elephant-loving nephew, Yellow Elephants Co was born!

The scrunchies have become a part of my weekly routine to fashion different hairstyles and the clutch bag in my opinion is better than any of the highstreet brands I own! Not only can I not fault the products produced but the service from Delilah's is exceptional! Sunnie is an inspiration to me and there are not enough words to describe how she goes above and beyond for her customers. If you want top quality products with a phenomenal service to go with it, you are looking at the right business! Hats off to you Sunnie!"
