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.
