The message of “Simplicity is a Luxury” clearly exudes from the simple lined products and the warm material used on the pens are captivating.
There were closed to 50 pieces of small pencils that were made and Elephant & Coral was fortunate enough to have purchased and received as gifts some of these “The World’s Smallest Pencil”. One of which was a gift from Count Andreas Faber-Castell when he visited Elephant & Coral to officiate the opening of the shop-in-shop.
What is so special about “The World’s Smallest Pencil”?
First of all, the pencil lead is made of real graphite and the pencil itself is made of the same wood as if it is a real pencil. Measuring 1.75 cm and complete with the flagship green colour Faber-Castell box; it is probably similar in length to the Waterman Doll pen.
Three lucky customers who have been with Elephant & Coral for all these times were given this pencil free.
This pencil sits gracefully within Elephant & Coral’s flagship boutique ever since as a memorabilia of the good will of Elephant & Coral with Graf von Faber-Castell
Elephant & Coral first started Graf von Faber-Castell in November 1997 at Holland Road Shopping Centre. It was just one vertical vertrine with several layers of pens featuring the classic wood range in Pernambuco wood, Ebony wood and the sterling silver collection.
Fast forward to 2001, Elephant & Coral opened Graf von Faber-Castell’s first shop-in-shop in Asia with the image and colours of the flagship Graf von Faber-Castell.
