our story

Aya Paper Co. is a sustainable stationery brand that creates greeting cards and gifts to celebrate the people and moments that matter most.

When Founder and Creative Director SaVonne Anderson began conceptualizing plans for Aya, 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.

SaVonne Anderson

Aya Paper Co. was founded in 2019 by SaVonne Anderson, while she was working full time as a graphic designer at a NYC contemporary art museum. She was inspired by notes of encouragement received by friends and family over the years to create a line of stationery that brings an authentic sense of joy and celebration to life's daily moments.

As the Creative Director, SaVonne prioritizes creating high quality, sustainable products that represent the diverse Black experience.
