We have oodles of new signature, PAPAYA! Accessory Pouches. They are one of the most treasured products we make. This one is "Tulum Sun" and originally painted in Tulum, Mexico. But we have lots of other news styles we've added to the collection too.

Step One: Make Art. Step Two: Make greeting cards! This has been one of our silent motto's. There's nothing better than taking those original works and translating them as closely as possible into something that people can share. Greeting cards will always be a favorite category at PAPAYA! It's where we began with our line, and more importantly each card represents a special moment between two or more people.
Just the way we like it. There's a juicy new batch of 10 new greeting cards, which means 10 new artworks! That gets us going. The cards you love the most end up getting their day in the sun on other fun products like Tassel Pouches or Notebooks.
Say hello to our new little, "Rain Child". A soon-to-be new addition tot he PAPAYA! line up beginning this fall. You will recognize it if you where able to visit us at the National Stationery Show, where PAPAYA! artist, Anahata Katkin was painting her right in the booth. Well, she's come home and gotten her bells and whistles, so she's ready to join the other PAPAYA! Muses. We hope "Rain Child" will be with us a very long time...
Meet Marci of Lula Mae in Pasadena, California. A gift and paper centric boutique, carrying PAPAYA! in the heart of Old Pasadena. We've been fans of Lula Mae for years and even more so of Ms. Marci. She not only curates this beautiful little gem-store but she moonwalks on instagram, loves dirty cards (who doesn't?), rescues doggies, promotes snail mail, curates vintage clothing and supports her paper people!We're proud to have our roots in the Los Angeles area. (Where PAPAYA! began in 2003) And we're super in love with savvy Lula Mae's offerings and heart felt, boutique expression. Thank you for carrying PAPAYA! Ms Marci. xoxox...
We had a blast today getting ready for our summer sun photoshoot tomorrow. We have free reign over a friends amazing home compound here in Ashland, Oregon. Complete with tricked out campers, trailers, busses, bohemian boudoir, bikes, butterflies and bali picnic nook! We're in heaven and cannot wait to roll up our sleeves tomorrow and play PAPAYA!-photo-shoot.
The pictures will be sexy- cuz lets face it, our ladies...just are. And we've been meaning to do a sassy shoot for quite some time. So the outfits got picked, the spaces are fluffed, we ate all the food and took a million of these iphone pictures to keep track of the plan. Nothing left to do besides cut watermelon and turn on the sprinklers! Cannot wait to share what happens at the shoot. Stay tuned...
PAPAYA! gets around. Meet the lovely founder of Milagros Mundo, a fair trade outpost in Amsterdam featuring a decidedly bohemian vibe.
We're dying to get on a plane and visit Milagros Mundo in person. This gorgeous, lifestyle boutique is indeed a PAPAYA! haven and you can find our products there. She'll even wrap them in leopard tissue paper and give you a spritz of South American rosewater!
We love a cornucopia boutique and this one has everything we love from our favorite countries all tucked into one place. Representing West Coast, USA....PAPAYA!You can learn more about Milagros Mundo here, and on facebook, pinterest & Instagram. Thank you Milagros Mundo for your beautiful offerings and making PAPAYA! available in Amsterdam. And if we DO make it to Amsterdam we're gonna need a boat ride like this one!

We love a good card wall at PAPAYA! Something about a sea of options and stacks of artwork and often, inspiration. PAPAYA! began it's business journey with nothing but a stack of 20 greeting cards. It was the most affordable way to share our artwork with the world.
It was also the most personal way. We knew each printed card represented a moment between at least two people. What better way to spread a message of creativity & optimism. Today we have over 150 original PAPAYA! greeting card designs. Greeting cards are still our most important PAPAYA! collection. And the most meaningful.We hope you are finding them sprinkled along your path. There when you need to support a friend, celebrate or cherish. We work hard to make our cards flexible in meaning. So that you can overlay the important moments in your life- onto them. Not the other way around. We love supporting human moments that matter, in your way. Where do YOU find our greeting cards? Do you have a favorite PAPAYA! haven somewhere in your area? Do you collect cards or seek them out when the need strikes. (There's usually two camps on this issue) Thank you for keeping our collections alive all these years. (And to you PAPAYA! boutiques out there stocking our goodies, *please share with us your pictures and spaces. We'd love to show them how to find you.)
