CardFolk is a greeting card line featuring printed images of abstract collage images of non-descript people highlighting culture with fashionable flair. Owner and artist Maya Beecham works with a local Minneapolis printer and purchases her materials, fabric and leather from local fabric stores. she also prides herself re-purposing donated materials from local businesses.
Sustainability plays a role in providing images to the general community that celebrates cultural diversity. Positive imagery offered by a woman of color to the broader community sustains a cultural vitality, strong sense of well being, the value of inclusion, and an understanding of the diversity of beauty. This sense of wholeness and well being is just as critical as the sustainability used to describe food. People need to feed their souls and bellies with healthy sustainable energy in the form of food, energy, imagery, connection, and understanding.” -Maya Beecham
