studio carta

Studio Carta, is an internationally recognized design studio specializing in custom ribbons, unique accessories and fine stationery imported directly from Italy.  It is the vision of bookmaker and designer Angela Liguori, herself originally from Rome, who now makes her home in the Boston Area. As the exclusive US importer of 100% cotton ribbons from Italy, Studio Carta works directly with manufacturers who have been using the same high quality materials and practices since the 19th century. We have more recently expanded our line of manufactured goods from Italy to include specialty office supplies, notions and desk accessories. Angela also collaborates with other designers, calligraphers, and printmakers to create original ribbon, letterpress stationery and other personalized products. The paper designs, ribbons and accessories are internationally distributed to gift shops and specialty boutiques.

Tucked away at the tail end of a row of craftsmen storefronts, Studio Carta provides the perfect finishing touch to any project: luxe Italian cotton ribbon imported by proprietor Angela Liguori, who works directly with manufacturers to develop her exclusive selection. The Rome-born designer and bookmaker also stocks handmade journals, stationery, vintage stamps and specialty office accessories. Shop hours are by appointment only, but keep watch for Liguori’s pop-up events where her husband serves espresso while artisans mix and mingle.
