Artists’ signatures are integrated into each design and they receive a commission on each sale made. Topping off the brand’s feel-good-business-model is an array of couture ribbons – perfectly matched to the papers they adorn. Shown here are just a few beauties from the collection. We hope you love them as much as we do!
