Founder Claire Yates comes from a family of paper merchants. In 2013, she decided to put her own spin on the family business and launched The Lion Rock Press: a go-to for eco-friendly, Hong Kong-themed premium stationery and gifts. Since then, her business has expanded from a tiny stall at a Christmas fair to one of the most coveted stationery brands in Hong Kong.
Claire's mother’s side of the family is Hong Kong Chinese, while her father’s side hails from Birmingham, England. The designs creatively explore these two cultures through the medium of printed stationery. Their greeting cards fuse HK-style graphics with very Western humour. Her great-grandfather founded their paper business almost 120 years ago and her 90 year-old grandfather and his brothers still work every day in the office.
