Lovely elephants but wrapped in non-biodegradable bubble plastic.
| 08 Jan 2018
Service My order arrived quite quite quickly in spite of its being the Christmas season. The items were well packed. The two soapstone carved elephants I bought are lovely. . Delighted with them. My only adverse comment is that bubble plastic was used in the packing. I would have been happier with something easily biodegradable, i.e. the heavy brown paper which is cut in a corrugated fashion, used by some companies. Product Delighted with my elephants. They are lovely

| 23 Dec 2017
Service Excellent customer service after I had made a mistake with the order online and had to ring up to rectify it. Very polite and friendly woman I spoke with. Product The hand carved elephant I bought was absolutely stunning. Bought as a gift for my mum as she is somewhat of a collector of elephants, I purchased the large one and it is so much nicer than I could ever have anticipated. I don’t usually leave reviews but I feel this really did deserve one. Absolutely stunningly made, wish I had bought both sizes as a pair but glad with the purchase I made. There is no doubt in my mind that my mum will love this and would go well with the rest of her collection.

I bought this elephant as a replacement for one that I had bought in Goa which had recently got broken. It is almost identical so really pleased. Sadly the first one sent had part of its tusk missing despite the very thorough wrapping and bubble wrap. I called customer services who were very prompt and helpful and immediately arranged for a replacement to be sent. This one has both tusks and I am delighted

OK... but could be a lot better
, Gloucestershire | 16 Sep 2016
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.

A note from the team

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.
