Illustration Brand: Cha Siu Papers (2018-2020)
Cha Siu Papers was founded in 2018. Faye was born and raised in Hong Kong and has a deep passion for the visual arts. After graduating from the University of Leeds in Art and Design BA (HONS), she returned to Hong Kong to start her business in quirky greeting cards. In an ever-growing digital world, Faye had an aspiration to continue creating “old-school” paper greeting cards using an eco-friendly approach (all work printed on 100% recycled paper).
Being half Chinese and half English, Faye was able to find a way to express the fusion between cultures and use this to humour people through cards with “puns” and witty lines. This project ended in late 2020 as Faye chose to pursue full-time writing opportunities but many of the cards are still available at stockists across Hong Kong including Oelili, Edgar HK, Vomfass and Hong Kong Trade Development Centre.
