From what started as a love for designing friend's wedding invitations, Sophie Duncan organically evolved her passion into a flourishing, eco-friendly stationary business,
Based in the Northern Rivers NSW, Deer Daisy specialises in environmentally conscious greeting cards. Each card is hand illustrated by Sophie and most are inspired by quirky comments made by friends, followed by 'that needs to be a card!' To counteract the use of petroleum based inks, Sophie's cards are created to provide an alternative, tree-friendly option. Deer Daisy cards are printed using 100% Australian made materials, using vegetable based inks and green electricity.
"I truely believe that when treat nature with love and respect, we simultaneously
express the same qualities towards ourselves, our families and our entire communities. When we look to enjoy the wholesome simplicities in life and consume in a conscious way, we minimise our footprint. This is a message that I try to portray through the simplicity and eco friendly nature of Deer Daisy cards… less is more!"
Sophie's passions don't stop there. In her 'spare' time, not only is she a mum to her beautiful toddler but she is a student of Ayurveda and is currently in the process of completing a Holistic Beauty Diploma. She loves to cook and spends a lot of time in the kitchen preparing nourishing Ayurvedic meals for her family and loved ones.
Sophie has a soft spot for Port Douglas after spending several years working here in her
early 20’s. Some of the people she met during this time are still her closest friends. We are very grateful to be able to reconnect our makers to Port Douglas, it's one of the many reasons why we started our store!
