Makery Favorite: Angela Liguori

One of our favorite and most inspiring craft supplies in the shop are the vintage wooden spools of colorful Italian cotton ribbon from Angela Liguori’s line, Studio Carta. The amazing gold and silver elastic, cotton twine and vintage glassine bags come from her as well.

Angela Liguori is based in Massachusetts and has been featured in Martha Stewart magazine as well as Martha’s American Made Online Shop. We are honored to stock such an exquisite line and support our fellow crafters.
