Ribbon Heaven.

Ok – we know V V Rouleaux is the epitome of ribbon fantasy. If you haven’t been to the Marylebone store yet, you must! It’s got every kind of trimming you could possibly want. In fact, they have every type of ribbon you didn’t know you wanted. You could spend hours in there and probably make some reckless, unjustifiable purchases. But it’s ribbon! You can’t be too careful…

Today, however, we are looking at the beautiful Studio Carta by Angela Liguori. Angela is originally from Rome (one of our favourite cities!) and now lives in the Boston area in Massachusetts, USA. She founded Studio Carta, which specialises in fine stationery and custom ribbons imported from Italy – the Italian cotton ribbons are from manufacturers who have been using the same materials and techniques since the 19th century! The selection and quality of Studio Carta’s ribbons are rather exquisite. In addition to her custom ribbons, Angela also collaborates with designers, calligraphers, and printmakers to create original letterpress stationery and other personalised products. Stationery heaven? Oh yes.

We can’t get enough of the wooden reels, glittery ribbons, and cosy little store. Did you spot the antique letterpress machines? So lovely! If there’s something missing in our lives, it’s a beautifully styled store selling a mix of vintage-style, decorative/functional, pretty things, like stationery and haberdashery. They somehow seem prolific in North America! We are definitely on the hunt for charming shops like Studio Carta in the British Isles…
