Hello! My name is Monique and I am the owner/designer of Violet Flamingos, which is based out of Newport Beach, CA.
I am a graphic and apparel designer in the surf/swimwear industry and I created Violet Flamingos to utilize my skills towards creating a fun, inspiring line of paper goods. There is something special about the handwritten note that can't be replaced by modern technology and I want to help preserve this special tradition. The main focus of the line is to create small works of art that can brighten up your day. The collections are inspired by nature, art deco and pop culture.
Violet Flamingos' goal is to use sustainable, recycled materials whenever possible. All of our paper products are FSC-certified and printed in the U.S.A. using environmentally responsible printers. Portions of the profits go towards the National Alliance on Mental Illness and ocean conservation charities.
