Dudley Discoveries: Aya Paper Co.

Despite the challenges of pandemic party planning, team Dudley is all about celebrating occasions and noting small moments, too. So when we discovered this female-founded, Black-owned designer of gifts, stationery and greeting cards—eco-friendly ones at that—we were sold. Their cards have an artful, personal feel with a bit of whimsy, and everything down to packaging is made with recycled materials. Count us fully behind the sentiment on Lauren’s Aya bag: Plastic doesn’t go with our outfits, either.
