About Elephant & Coral
Elephant & Coral was established in 1996 as a small Singapore Pen Shop in Holland Village, Singapore. The name “Elephant & Coral” is derived from a place in London, Elephant & Castle, where the founder spent some of his best years of education in England.
Elephant & Coral is a leader in the retail and wholesale business of fine writing instruments from all over the world – including rare collectibles – and fine desk accessories. In our endeavour to bring forth a different writing experience to our customers, we have successfully launched our first limited-edition fountain pen and rollerball “The Saints” in 2004 with a unique design created and sold exclusively in our boutiques.
The success of “The Saints” collection is unprecedented, fuelling the inspiration for two further collections, namely “The Noto Nogoro” and “Seki-shun” in 2004 and 2005 respectively.
In 2001, Elephant & Coral expanded its business into fine bespoke, engraved social and business stationeries. A new entity, Chelsey Papier, creates premium stationeries using Crane’s 100% Cotton Paper for special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, weddings, childbirths and condolences.
