About Our Brand

Paper Pony Co. is a line of stationery founded by Talia Gavish in 2015. Ponies by nature are temperamental and feisty. They may be cute, but there’s always an element of surprise. Our own style is inspired by this sense of spirit. Our world is one of bold colors, whimsical patterns, quirky line drawings and sometimes a silly pun. Our products are locally printed on FSC certified recycled paper. We only partner with manufacturers who uphold our standard of quality and ethics and continue to take strides to leave a small but mighty environmental hoof print behind!

Why I'm Reining It In

I've decided to scale back our business to focus more on my family and wellbeing. Paper Pony will now primarily be a wholesale brand exclusive to Faire marketplace. We'll still have a few best sellers and digital products available on our Etsy shop but will no longer be selling products through this website. Our home studio isn't large enough for appropriate social distancing and I haven't been able to employ help since the pandemic began. It's been a real struggle to run this business all by myself with a young toddler by my side! There's a possibility that this will change in the future but for now I'm pulling back the reins so I can collect my stride. You get it, right?!

Our Story

In 2015, I moved across the country from Brooklyn, NY to Oakland, CA. Having lived my whole life in NY - minus a few years of college at RISD - I needed a change. It was an impulsive decision and I didn't think my career as a print and textile designer would come to an end. Want to be a UX designer? Move to the Bay Area. Want a full time job with benefits in the fashion industry? Stay in NYC. To say I panicked is an understatement. I have always turned to art, nature, and horses as forms of therapy and social interaction. Paper Pony is inspired by those outlets and began as a way to reconnect to a creative lifestyle. It has slowly developed into a new career path, one I'm still carving out for myself. My husband Mike is my support system and cheerleader. We now live in Berkeley with our two silly cats and daughter, Sasha.
