JIWA JIWA PRESS
Cherish Prado-Sherman is the creative mind and operator behind Jiwa Jiwa Press. Born and raised on O’ahu, Hawai’i, Cherish went on to study printmaking at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon. There she found a passion for the classical art of letterpress printing. After graduating, she migrated North to Seattle and began working with several letterpress companies; hand-crafting quality letterpressed products. In 2009, Cherish took on the endeavor of establishing her own business “Jiwa Jiwa”, which roughly translates in Japanese to “little by little” or “slowly, but surely”. In 2015, she and her husband decided to move back to Honolulu to set down some roots. Since being home, Cherish has gotten her paper goods into several local shops, including Mori by Art+Flea, The Wedding Cafe, Green Mountain, and Guava Shop.
