|Creator ijender Shekhawat plans to process 30 tons of the gigantic faeces every month in order to produce special paper to make the cards. |
The owner from Jaipur, India will utilise the grass and leaf fibres that go through the elephant's stomach without being digested to create his master faeces.
'Elephants' gastrointestinal tract cannot digest fibres well,' he said.
'About 40 per cent of everything goes through untouched but softened and pre-pulped.
'As a result, their dung make fantastic paper when it is pressed and processed.'
Vijender is committed to expanding his Haathi Chaap (Elephant Stamp) business to include delivery to European customers.
'Business is picking up and we are expanding,' he added.
'People always worry about the smell, but believe me the cards smell as sweet as any other Valentine's Day cards on the market.'
