Papaya Founders 

PAPAYA! has been pushing the envelope since 2003 with bold, heart-centered imagery and a philosophy all our own.  Based in Southern Oregon, USA, PAPAYA! strives to share an original and undiluted artistic perspective.

A family business from the beginning, PAPAYA! is fueled and founded by Gina & Anahata Katkin and joined by Elijah Katkin.  What began as 20 greeting cards has evolved into an exciting spectrum of hundreds of fine lifestyle & stationery offerings.  Our collections are celebrated in over 12 nations worldwide and across the United States.  Our products feature original artwork by Anahata & the PAPAYA! design team, using a special range of paintings, drawings, & mixed media to achieve our signature aesthetic.

PAPAYA! is proud to have recently expanded, introducing our 4,000 square foot flagship boutique in Ashland, OR, PAPAYA! LIVING, where original artwork by Anahata Joy Katkin is available, as well as an eclectic mix of clothing, jewelry, home essentials, accessories, and more.

We are proud to be supported by an incredible cast of talented employees, designers, craftsmen, forward thinkers, and trade partners who keep our mission of creative abandon alive and thriving...
