Each card is more than a card. It is a miniature, unique work of art.
Simply add your message and you have a card that is upcycled into a gift. A gift that contains your message hidden inside, like an old fashioned locket. And like a locket, at 5″ x 7″, it will fit almost anyone’s space, even if you’re living in a tiny home.
The card comes with a mat ready to fit almost any 8″ x 10″ frame. Whether you opt to purchase a frame to complete the package or gift it as is, you a long-lasting, customize card/gift for someone special in your life.
The collages are made from mostly off-cuts of hand- or machine-made Japanese silkscreened or Thai paper. The papers are created using multi-generations old traditions of natural materials like plants, tree branches or grasses and often, non-toxic ink. Though some of the paper is machine-made, it is still done via sustainable and non-toxic methods. And all the silkscreening is done by hand.
Thus not only are you bringing original art and beauty into the life of someone you love, your purchase helps support small family businesses as well as carry these ancient sustainable art practices forward.
