Established in 2010 by Samantha Schwikkard, Elephantshoe is a custom boutique Stationery, Design and Art Studio creating pretty products that make life lovely.

Originally from South Africa and now based in London, we believe that a little latitude and longitude shouldn't get in the way of us making wedding invitations, custom designs and products for buyers and small businesses both near and far. As a result we have both local and international clients and retailers.

Combining old-world charm and new-world design,  Elephantshoe is “a little bit of classic with a dash of new, a jar filled with love and a dollop of whimsy, all tied together with creativity and simplicity”.

Shoppe here to find the perfect paperie pretty for your home and workspace. Add that extra ooh, aah and pop to the next gift you give, our latest hot foil print collections are the perfect present for friends, newly weds, stationery lovers, moms and more.
