Fiber and Dye
Fiber and Dye: Lisa Aihara started Fiber & Dye on her 30th birthday after years of loving pestering from friends and family telling her to find a creative outlet to flex her art muscle, if you will.

Lisa draws inspiration (pun intended) from the people in her life for her designs. For the greeting cards, they’re intended to be that “aha” card, the one where as soon as you set your eyes on it you know exactly who you’ll give it to. That’s why they’re all oddly specific, and not meant for every one. No generic sentiments here. Your stories are nothing but generic, so why would the cards we celebrate with be blah?
