Tina Givens was born in southern Africa in the 1960s. It was a childhood rich with culture from that beautiful locale and her own English and Mediterranean heritage. Many years later she married and moved with her American husband, via Canada, to the Midwest. Once again, she had a whole new environment to absorb.
Tina launched her first stationery collection, Cid Pear in 2004. The company created a venue for Tina’s philosophy on art, clothing, design, color and function, all seen through her multicultural experiences.
Cid Pear stationery items can be found in stores ranging from small boutiques to Bloomingdales.
