The Myakka pedigree
15 years of beautifully designed fair trade furniture, forest care and fast delivery.
OK... but could be a lot better
I have bought both the medium and large versions of the elephant. It was my intention to give them as gifts. However, having examined the items carefully, I do not consider the larger elephant to be of sufficiently high quality to offer as a gift. I have compared the quality of the items to a soapstone owl (with a smaller owl inside) that I bought in Greece some years ago. There is simply no comparison in terms of quality and design; the Greek owl is absolutely beautifully made. This purchase was my first from you as a test for quality as I was intending to buy a number of items of furniture from you. I shall have to think very carefully before proceeding with further purchases. Pictures in brochures do not always give an accurate view of the real quality and design of the product.

Myakka Comment: Thank you for your review. We are sorry that the Soapstone Elephants you received were not of the quality you expected. As each of the elephants is hand carved, they do all differ in appearance and style slightly.
I was looking for something unusual to place on a side table, and found this beautiful soap stone carved elephant through Myakka. It looks fabulous, is quite heavy and beautifully carved and such good value. I thought it would be more expensive, but would have bought anyway. Right through from placing the order on line to delivery was excellent and the packaging was also good so as not to chance any damage to the product. Would definitely recommend this company and will be buying again In the future.
