Whom do you consider a style icon?

Grace Kelly.

What do you consider a fashion “faux-pas”?

We believe fashion is an extension of yourself, so if you want to wear a wedding dress with a baseball cap, go you!

What would you like to leave to future generations?

As our society leans more and more towards technology, the diminishing use of paper is evident. Going green is a wonderful initiative to help the environment, but we miss the tactile sensation and intimacy that paper presents. For this reason, we use an alternative type of paper, made purely from cotton. We would like to leave to future generations a collection of different types of paper that will one day become so rare.

What’s next:

Along with the launch of our modern line, we will also be opening a San Francisco office earlier next year.
