The Beginning

It all started with a trip to Thailand in September 2013 and stumbling upon the locally-made elephant pants. Nathan, in his state of excitement, purchased several pairs as gifts for friends back in the States and for his own personal wear. As you can guess, the pants were a huge hit for their comfort, ornate designs, and the resulting superhero feeling you'll experience while wearing them.  

After seeing the positive responses, Nathan decided to pursue something larger and began locking down elephant pants suppliers. With a supplier lined up and styles selected, Nathan enlisted the help of his business partner James and together they began forming the foundation of the brand, The Elephant Pants. The Elephant Pants bring you adventurous and stylish comfort that can accompany you on your daily journey. Wear them around the house, while running errands, on your way to yoga class, or out to the movies with friends.  

Now The Elephant Pants needs your help to bring these amazing pants State-side. With our goal set at $5,000, we will be able to bring six styles of elephant pants into the mix. As a "thank you" for being an early-adopter, we will be covering the shipping costs on all U.S. pledges being shipped out. Help us by pledging and declare victory for your legs.

Say No Campaign

For every pair sold we are donating $1 to the African Wildlife Foundation and their Say No Campaign. This campaign has been created to help bring an end to Elephant Poaching. In 2012 alone there were more then 35,000 Elephants poached for their tusks.

 Help us save some Elephants and get stylish in the process!

The Pants

The most comfortable and uplifting pants you'll ever own. The Elephant Pants are guaranteed to put a smile on your face and those around you. Our styles are authentic Thai designs coming in an array of designs and colors. The pants are made from 100% cotton. They are one-size-fits all with an elastic band on the waist and legs. Pockets are conveniently located on both sides and can easily fit a cellphone, wallet, or pair of sunglasses. 

The Styles

We are starting with six styles and bringing them here to the States. Each $18 pledge is for a particular style, so be sure you are pledging for the style you want! Scroll down to see the first six styles and declare victory for your legs #legvictory.

Risks and challenges

As a backer of our project, you'll have the joy of watching us grow The Elephant Pants into a thriving company. One of the key challenges in our project will be managing our supply chain and quality of our elephant pants. We have built a strong relationship with our supplier and will continue to strive for excellence in our quality and styles that we offer to our customers.

Inventory management, timely order fulfillment, and customer service is always front-of-mind for us. Our background in the e-commerce fashion world (see www.bedfordandbroome.com) will help us make The Elephant Pants run smoothly and exceed our customers' expectations. With your pledge, our immediate needs to produce pants, create branded materials, and ship orders to customers will be made possible.
