"My first dog Maggie, rescued me at the perfect time and gave me far more than I can ever say. As my constant companion, she helped me to understand the positive impact that animals and nature can have in our lives and I remain forever grateful. Our work is a celebration of her spirit and showcases our connection to the beauty that flows through all life and nature."
The illustrations for our stationery and gifts are designed and drawn by hand in beautiful, Burlington Vermont. Our first I Ain't Pure collection was created using traditional media such as pen + ink, ink wash, colored pencil or watercolor. Our next collection invited our cat friends into the group with I Ain't No Pussycat and continues to grow each year. We add new designs to these classic collections twice a year because we don't think there is such a thing as too many cute dogs and cats as well as new lines like garden, farm and songbirds. In 2020 we added our gift category with new items released throughout the year. Our designs are always positive, uplifting with beautiful artwork and a touch of humor.
Good to know, many of the animal illustrations for our stationery and gifts were rescued or adopted and whenever possible, we share their story on the back of the product donating a percentage of each sale to the Pawsitive Change Program , an innovative and progressive program that pairs incarcerated men and juveniles with rescued dogs for mutual rehabilitation.
