Your Stories.
Their Heirloom.®

'Be reborn alone each month like the moon,
Or leave behind offshoots to carry your legacy'

— Madagascan Folktale

 

At Plantain, we help individuals, families and companies capture their life stories in unique ways.

With each book, we work hard to get to what your story means to you, and what it could mean to everyone else.

Our mission is to inspire everyone to tell their story: beautifully sharing our legacies helps us understand just how intimately connected we all are, ultimately contributing to creating a more empathetic world.

 
 

 

We make it easy for you
