The farragio story

Hi, I'm Angela. I was born in England, raised in Missouri, lived in Alaska, then moved back to Missouri. All while getting married, raising two great kids as well as rescue pugs and rescue cats . . . it's been an adventuresome life and through it all I’ve had the dream of owning my own business.

In March of 2010 I finally decided to take the plunge into the entrepreneurial world. But, having many different interests, I wasn't sure which direction I wanted to go with my business. That's how I came up with the name farragio. It's my play on the word farrago, which means "a mix of things."

I originally started my business designing and creating custom handbags, totes, and toiletry bags, and was featured in publications such as ALIVE and St. Louis Bride & Groom. In the meantime I had been making my own homemade moisturizer that I'd been using for about five years and when I started to share it with family and friends they convinced me I needed to be selling it, so I took a left turn with my business and introduced my line of all-natural moisturizer, coffee scrub, setting spray, and coffee oil. The response has been amazing and my skin care line is off and running.

Being what I call a 'solopreneur' is a rewarding challenge. It keeps me on my toes and provides wonderful opportunities for growth and learning. Every item you see is hand-created by me from start to finish with the utmost attention to quality and detail. But, the best part about hand-created items is the personal touch that makes sharing them so much more special.
