This design comes from over a century ago on a paper used as endpapers in a 1908 Amsterdam binding. The compelling simplicity of the design shows how the design world was transforming from very ornate Victorian designs to design which is more open and fluid.
The paper in the cards is sourced from French Paper Company, a family run company in Niles, Michigan. They are a pioneer in recycled paper production, and their mill is powered by fully renewable hydroelectric generators installed in 1922 (saving over one million barrels of fossil fuel to date). They make their green energy on-site. They also produce surplus energy for use by the local community. French paper has the smallest carbon footprint in the industry.
The #HASHCARDS are printed and hand-stamped in house.
