you don’t often think of a dude as a greeting card designer and that’s exactly why we think ashkahn is so cool. he designs all of his own cards and each one is letter pressed with ink and foils on french cotton paper by a master printer in LA. he works downstairs in our studio building and we’ve loved getting to know him! his goal is to make sure none of his cards ever see a trash can.

DIY - I made three embroidery projects for the new german craft book called "Stitch It Yourself" by Knaur Kreativ. One of them is this cool wallhanging embroidered with extra chunky yarn.
