As a young girl, company owner/operator Anna Kate Coffey was dressed in an elegant pink wool pea coat and bucket hat by her grandfather and nicknamed “Mrs. Calabash,” a moniker borrowed from the infamous radio signoff phrase used by the late American icon and entertainer, Jimmy Durante. The young artist persona that was born continues to inspire not only the company name, but also its featured artwork. Rendered with classic motifs, as well as Anna Kate's calligraphy, the designs of Calabash Card Co. seek to marry timeless ornamentation with contemporary artful conception. The result is a distinguishable stationery product line characterized by its clean and widely accommodating design.
