All the elephant dung paper used to make the note holders are handmade at the Maximus Elephant Conservation Trust in Sri Lanka.

The process of making elephant dung paper is a little different from making regular handmade paper. The fibres are pulped by the elephant, instead of by hand or machine, whilst they are digesting, then the readymade pulp comes out the back!

The elephant dung is collected then vigorously boiled with margosa leaves, which are a natural disinfectant. They are then mixed with 25% recycled paper, resulting in our beautiful elephant dung paper. The coarseness and shade of the paper are entirely dependent on the elephants’ diet, making each sheet as unique as the elephant that produced it.

Due to the handmade nature of these products, colours and designs may slightly vary but loveliness comes as standard.

Making a difference elephantThe products in our elephant dung range are made by skilled and creative artisans using elephant dung paper from the Maximus Elephant Conservation Trust.

The ultimate in recycling, elephant dung is collected and boiled to sterilise it before the paper-making process. As unique as the animal that helped to produce it, each piece of paper is different depending on the diet of the elephant.

Improving the outlook for the majestic elephants of Sri Lanka, Maximus has its workshop in the grounds of the Millennium Elephant Foundation (MEF), a wonderful small charity that cares for sick, old, and disabled elephants. Working with initiatives like Maximus, the foundation is able to show the positive relationship local economies can have with these amazing animals, and work towards resolving the conflict between the elephants and the local communities as they turn to eating farmers’ crops as their natural habitat is destroyed.

By making a purchase, you are helping to continue the fantastic work of our producers.
