Anya Prints is the brainchild of Shilpa Bisht, a communication designer from Ahmedabad. Anya Prints aspires to be a design and production centre for hand-printed visuals in the form of greeting cards, storybooks and textiles. Shilpa recently launched her first collection 'Water' - a set of limited edition fine prints, in the form of greeting cards. She sent this collection of cards to me with the most delightful hand written letter, and made me very happy! I can't wait to see what Shilpa and Anya Prints have in store for us this year! In the meantime, get her debut collection right here!
