About Us

 

 

Hi!  We are Diane and Jeff Cannon.  Joyful Elephant came to fruition as we discovered a fresh value on life through travel, new cultural experiences, developing our own creative outlets, and most of all through the deep and meaningful connections we made with locals along the way.

 Strolling through the narrow streets of Udaipur, India, we stumbled upon some of the most gorgeous handmade journals we’d ever seen. We were magnetically draw to the quality of work that went into the hand-sewn binding, delicately embossed leather covers and the lovely hand-crafted paper inside. There was truly a journal for every individual at this source, and they called to be written in. We thought, “We’ve never seen anything like this back home... We’ve got to share these with everyone that we know; they’ll appreciate the craftsmanship and maybe they’ll find the same motivating inspiration here, that we do...”

 

We got to talking with the crafters and learned much more about the people behind the product. That, in a nutshell, is what Joyful Elephant is about. Making connections, regardless of borders and sharing the moving stories behind each product and piece of art shared in this space.
