Welcome to Lyon Africa

Welcome to Lyon Africa, where exquisite stationary meets African style.

We love Africa, and we love gorgeous stationary. To us, there’s nothing better than pitch black pen on crisp paper –which is why we make beautiful gold-embossed cards and envelopes with an African feel.

Our classic and stylish environmentally-friendly craft stationary is perfect for writing to your loved ones, and designed with the intention of helping you remember your trip to the world’s second-largest continent. Take them back home with you as a keepsake, or give as a gift. Available at game reserves & curio shops nation-wide as well as our online shop, it’s the perfect excuse to bring the days of hand-written letters back.


The Big Five?

Each of our cards has a different African animal embossed on the front, as a nod to our love for our nation’s unique wildlife. We have giraffes, elephants, lions, buffalo, leopards and rhino because we don’t think it’s fair to leave some out just because they aren’t in the crew.

We love the good ‘ol days.

All of our foil-pressed cards and craft stationary are locally produced and are made using old fashioned printing methods because we believe in quality. Our cards and envelopes are crafted with excellence and are environmentally friendly, as well as compact for traveling so you can take them home with you.

About Us

Purveyor of boutique fine crafted African wildlife stationery and products,  Lyon Africa is a small Cape Town based business which crafts foil-pressed graphics and beautiful stationary. Our business rose out of the idea that it’s so difficult for tourists to find stylish, compact and high-quality curios to remind them of their visit to South Africa, so we came up with some designs and went for it.
