About Alicia Souza

Alicia Souza is a happiness-illustrator who resides in lovely-weathered Bangalore, India with her two insanely-cute but naughty furries. She's done commercial work for lovely large companies to passionate new entrepreneurs and enjoys them both equally. Regular updates can be seen on her Instagram page, Blog & Facebook.

After the wonderful response from her first solo exhibition of products, she decided to bring her products to online store. A whole lot more exhibitions, samples and trials later, and with the help of her most loyal local manufacturers, and a wee dedicated team, Alicia Souza now brings your order to your door.

Do mail us your hellos, queries, doubts and (hopefully not) complaints & we'll get back to you as soon as possible with a reply and a virtual smile :)
