Girl w/ Knife, your new BFF in paper goods, home decor, and luxury gifts, is the creative vision of artist Elicia Castaldi. Among her numerous design awards, in 2022 Elicia received the coveted Louie Award for Artist Of The Year from the Greeting Card Association. Every Girl w/ Knife product is meticulously designed by Elicia in Los Angeles, is manufactured locally, and ships from our girl-powered pink warehouse in Palm Springs, California. After its 2018 launch, our brand exploded into thousands of retail stores around the world, and has been featured in publications such as HGTV, BuzzFeed, LA Business Journal, Palm Springs Life, Stationery Trends, What Women Create, and more.
Girl w/ Knife combines Elicia’s paper lust with her love of fashion, travel, a good laugh, and anything the color of rosé. Her illustrations are a mixture of painted, cut paper, and digital elements, with the creative process ever-supervised by her fierce white cat. Quite literally, there’s always an X-acto knife within arm’s reach, thus “Girl w/ Knife”.
Our products are feminine, authentic, unapologetic, and just might break your most stoic RBF. We believe in a life lived glamorously, with reckless abandon, in 6 inch stilettos.
