La Familia Green, conceived in Spring 2005 by painter/printmaker/entrepreneur Mollie Green and savvy husband Andrew Miners, represents an eclectic assortment of interests and ideas. The aesthetic is Mexican folk art meets Scandinavian design meets wildlife preserve "¦ West Texas meets the Midwest. Colorful stationery and clever, hand-bound journals make up the family.

Repurposed VHS boxes, classic album sleeves and mailed, vintage postcards serve as journal covers. All paper goods are either graciously Gocco printed or crafted from hand- cut and collaged paper. They like to emphasize that all offerings from La Familia Green are produced in small quantities by hand. This ensures that you will send a card or give a gift that is unique—each piece a little work of art.

The ever-evolving collection is inspired by their growing list of obsessions—high-top sneakers, the style of Alexander Girard, fluorescent pink, floaty pens, comic books, thrift-store owl collections, 1970s tennis manuals, dioramas, the sky in New Mexico, Scandinavian textiles"¦

La Familia Green strives everyday to make environmentally-friendly choices and to reduce energy and waste. They only use paper and envelopes that are 30-100% post consumer recycled. They support vendors that minimize their environmental impact. Their clear sleeves are biodegradeable, sustainable and compostable. And they are big advocates of reuse---from shipping boxes and packing material to discarded magazines that we they to line envelopes. They also only buy products (like the soap at the sink) that have not been tested on animals.

All La Familia Green items are handmade in their studio in Logan Square.
