These handcrafted cards are designed in Minnesota by Anh Nguyen, and then handcrafted in her home country of Vietnam by artisans who use the Vietnamese technique of 'quilling' (rolling strips of paper and creating a design).

Iconic Quilling is a small business based in Minneapolis, MN and owned by Aaron and Anh. Their process starts with Anh creating colored pencil drawings and gluing rolled strips of paper over them. This is a process called Quilling that originated in Italy in the 1300's when artists would use the quill of a bird feather to wrap thin strips of paper into floral shapes.

Anh then partners with her artist friend Nhu, based in their home of Ho Chi Minh City, to perfect the art, hire and train the talented women who create the cards. These artisans work from home to roll strips of paper by hand and glue them over Anh's unique designs.

Aaron and Anh's hope is that the convergence of these two businesses will bring color and joy to your life!
