Sewing Kit limited edition box by PilgrimWaters

We are delighted to announce a new collaboration: the release of a limited-edition, one-of-a-kind Sewing kit box handmade by our friends at PilgrimWaters. 

Susy and Keith - the designer and maker duo behind PilgrimWaters - have been longtime friends of Studio Carta. Based in Boston, MA, Keith and Susy design colorful and distinct textiles, furniture and apparel. We’re thrilled to have worked with Susy and Keith on this product, launching just for Studio Carta in April 2021.

Originally designed as a sewing kit, this box is truly a keepsake. Each depicts a distinct artwork painted and collaged on the interior and exterior with a personal quirky message from Susy to you! 

A truly special gift for the sewer or art-lover in your life.
