Elephantshoe Haul

So a couple of days ago I showed you what I received in my January 2014 ‘I Love You Box’ from Ellieshoe.  Today, I’m doing a quick haul blog post for you, I hope you enjoy!

Elephantshoe was founded by Sam & James Schwikkard in 2010.  I personally first met Sam & James when Sam designed our wedding invitations back in 2012.  Elephantshoe started out doing design, printing and styling for weddings, parties and baby showers and is now doing company branding (plus they have a fabulous online shop as well).

The Ellieshoe online shop went live in 2013 and is filled with loads of goodies including stamps, Save The Dates, gift tags, washi tapes, straws, aprons designed by Sam, laser cut bits & bobs and….Pantone products.  I love Pantone products, don’t ask me why….but their products just scream sophistication.  I guess it has something to do with the minimalistic design of the products and simple typography. I used to ogle over all the Pantone products sold on eBay but never ordered something because shipping was just too pricey (especially if you’re buying a mug or two).

I was so happy to see Elephantshoe stocking some of the Pantone products and when they had a 25% sale a couple of weeks ago, I decided to get a couple of things.  Here’s what I bought:

Two coffee mugs – one in shade ‘Warm Gray’ and one in shade ‘Crocus’.  I bought the gray mug for Neal and the bright purple mug for myself (the purple one is actually such a beautiful colour, the photo really doesn’t do it justice).  You can find the mugs here and they retail for R 150,00 per mug (the sale has unfortunately already ended).

And I also bought a set of 6 coasters – I am obsessed with coasters, we have them everywhere in the house.  You can find the coaster set here and it retails for R 200,00.

I am hoping Elephantshoe will be stocking a couple of the Pantone Radiant Orchid products soon (Radiant Orchid is the Pantone colour of the year for 2014), especially this beauty (it’s a travel mug):

Go take a look at the Ellieshoe online shop – guaranteed you’ll find something you love!

      I know, I adore travel mugs although I never really travel anywhere haha! I do use them in Winter while I work, though, because they keep my coffee warmer for longer. 🙂

      You should do that, Lily! It will look amazing – I love accent walls! xxx

      I’m sure they deliver to the Eastern Cape, but maybe send them a mail and ask them. 🙂 Their aprons are so lovely, definitely need to get my hands on the MRS one! 😉
