Unique Variation 
We have made every effort to show the colours and images of our elephant backpacks on the Yho!Yho! website as accurately as possible. Relevant dimensions are also given for  information. However, your chosen products may vary slightly from their images and there may be minor variations in dimensions.

We are proud of the quality craftsmanship of our products. Each of our backpacks is handmade and created from fabric which is woven in small batches in the traditional way. As a result there is slight natural variation inherent in the fabric and creation of each backpack. We truly believe this adds to the beauty and individual character of each elephant as a unique gift.
