Stationery with Representation!

My name is B. Marie, and I am the founder of Brown Aspiration. I’m a consistent journaler; I have a notebook collection you would not believe. However, I noticed that stationery lines in the stores did not depict the diversity we see around the world.

As a consumer who wanted retailers to do a better job of having representation that more resembled my community; I took it upon myself to solve this problem. I created a stationery and office line that focuses on providing positive images of everyday diverse people.

* February 2018: The Brown Aspiration store launched officially with our signature #Dopebooks line,
* April of 2018: We added our #GlamPens
* November 2018 we added out #LifePlanners.
* February 2019: Celebrated our 1st Anniversary at the National Stationery Show as an Emerging Artist of 2019.

We are working hard to establish our brand so that whatever your race or nationality; when you think of stationery, your first thought is Brown Aspiration.

Thank you for being part of it 🙂
B. Marie
