Aya’s collection is defined by neutral earth tones, minimalist illustrations, and modern typography. The collection emphasizes cards for everyday occasions—birthdays, congratulations, love, friendship, and sympathy—while also creating seasonal items for the Winter Holiday Season, Valentine’s Day, Womxn’s Month, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and more. Sentiments range from inspiring and poetic to lighthearted and humorous. In addition to cards, Aya has produced notecard sets, journals, tote bags, and candles.
When Founder and Creative Director SaVonne Anderson began conceptualizing plans for Aya in 2018, the well-being of the earth was at the front of mind. As an advocate for environmental justice, she wanted to ensure that Aya Paper Co. didn’t perpetuate issues like climate change and pollution, which disproportionately impact communities of color. All paper products are made with 100% recycled material, and sourcing information can be found on each product page.”
