Namiki pays tribute to the largest land mammals on this planet, The Elephant, with this Namiki Elephant Limited Edition Fountain Pen collection. Elephants live extraordinarily long lives, with an average life expectancy of 60 years. As such, they have come to symbolize “survival,” “prosperity,” and “life.” They are considered intelligent, wise, patient, and fiercely loyal. Elephants are also symbols of family happiness, as they live in close-knit family groups.

Some African elephant males live alone, while others live in groups. Female elephants live together with their calves in a herd of three to ten animals until the calves become independent. African elephants grow in their mothers’ wombs until they are quite developed, so they already weigh 120 kilograms at birth and can live with their herd as soon as they are born. When a baby calf is born, the elephants in the same herd recognize the new member and protect both the calf and the mother. They share information such as where to find food and water, how to live on the move, and how to behave in a group of adults, acquiring social skills in the same way as humans do. 

  The gentle scene of a sunset on the Savannah is depicted on the cap of the fountain pen. On the front of the barrel, a single elephant is represented using Shishiai Togidashi-Taka Maki-e (Combined Raised and Burnished Maki-e), allowing the elephant’s strength and skin texture to be felt. An egret bird is also portrayed. Egrets have a symbiotic and very beautiful relationship with elephants: egrets eat the parasites that live on the elephants’ skin, and elephants reciprocate by protecting the egrets from predators. 

This Savannah landscape evoking the dignity, wisdom, and love of elephants is depicted to recreate an entire painting on a single fountain pen. In recent years, elephants on the African Savannah have been threatened with extinction due to poaching and habitat loss. It is heartbreaking that humans have influenced the ecology of elephants in this manner. 

For the future, it is imperative to think of ways to protect these endangered animals and prevent environmental destruction. As the call for more ESG (Environmental Social and Governance) awareness grew among developed countries knowing it's long term impact to humanities and weather conditions become the utmost urgency in protecting and ensuring its long term sustainability. 

The Namiki Elephant Limited Edition Fountain Pen is coincidentally coming straight after Namiki Coral Limited Edition in 2021 on the heels of catastrophic weather conditions creating havoc to the European continent, Asia and Australia.

Elephant & Coral shared these vision on sustainability of our environment with both the Namiki Elephant Limited Edition Fountain Pen and the Namiki Coral Limited Edition fountain pen.  We highly recommend this Namiki Elephant Limited Edition Fountain Pen from us to grace any ESG events around the world because of its significance and vision.

Only 99 of these Namiki Elephant Limited Edition Fountain Pens have been launched worldwide. The pen body of the Emperor vest type has been decorated by the KOKKOKAI Maki-e artisan Mamoru Wakabayashi. Call Elephant & Coral  at 6736-1322 or email us at sales@elephant-coral.com
