Lil Leaders brand fills a void in the market for consumers who desire children’s products that promote diversity & inclusion of characters with professions that go beyond athletics and entertainment.  

Lil Leaders products are currently available globally online, and through vendor marketing events in the USA. 

Our Story

Chris and Ingrid, an Entrepreneur from Chicago, and a Mechanical Engineer from Georgia, are the Founders of Lil Leaders. The idea stemmed from their 5-year-old daughter being saddened that she did not look like some of her favorite hero and princess characters on her clothing like most of her kindergarten schoolmates.  She innocently questioned why none of her clothing had characters that were “brown like me”.  They explained that everyone is uniquely made, but honestly did not have a great answer to her question.  

As her parents, they were highly motivated to find her kids clothing with Black characters, but experienced very little success. The were confident that other families have encountered this same dilemma, and from there decided to provide a solution to this problem.  Thus...Lil Leaders was created!!

Our Mission

Lil Leaders’ mission is to inspire our youth to be leaders and follow their dreams. We do this by providing positive images of leaders that look like them. 

--If they see it, they believe it, and they WILL achieve it!

Lil Leaders is so excited to provide this to ALL people of ALL ages.  We hope that you shop with us and enjoy wearing our inspiring and unique clothing!!
