Thailand is the home of more varieties of orchids than any other country, over 1300! It's only fitting that this orchid note card gives a nod to one of the many Thai species. Our bestselling cards, these batik note cards are popular not only as a traditional card, but are often framed as art and kept for years. Blank inside for a hand written note.

In Nepal, those afflicted with leprosy, as well as their families, are ostracized and regarded as unclean. Little known to many, leprosy is curable if treated with antibiotics. Any resulting nerve damage in the fingers remains, but the disease is gone. The stigma remains, however, so they have little hope of earning an income. These families are now making cards using the batik process, a time consuming artistry which requires multiple steps of dying and waxing on cotton fabric. The artisans are paid fair wages and have access to medical benefits and educational opportunities they would otherwise not have access to.
