Rad enamel pins by People I've Loved of Oakland, California.
About the maker
People I've Loved is a company of a few human beings longing for connection. They are a small printmaking workshop based out of Oakland, California. They specialize in hand-printed & assembled objects, and they make them in a small studio by an Oakland farmhouse with a lemon tree. People I've Loved works to facilitate the communication between real, tactile people. People I've Loved started in 2011 when Carissa Potter left Colpa Press to focus on creating a stationary line that would bridge the gap between people by helping them have authentic and sometimes difficult conversations.
Carissa thinks about each card as a form of performance art that choreographs interactions between humans in various types of relationships. Giving in to nostalgic thoughts on the past, buried longings and hopes for the future, People I've Loved's product line embraces the whole range of emotions. We are “in search of the miraculous” yet tragic definition of what it means to exist, in this time and space. And People I've Loved feels that we should make time to share it.
