About farragio

Meet the owner & maker

Hi, I'm Angela. I was born in England, raised in Missouri, traveled to Europe, moved to Alaska, then back to Missouri. All while getting married, raising two great kids as well as rescue pugs and rescue cats. Through it all I had the dream of owning my own business.

In March of 2010 I 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 cosmetic and shaving kit bags (also called "dopp kits"), and was featured in publications such as ALIVE and St. Louis Bride & Groom. In the meantime, I had been making my own moisturizer and when I started to share it with family and friends the response was so enthusiastic my skincare line was off and running.

I have done extensive research through the years for my skincare products and have come up with superior formulas that help address everything from fine lines, uneven skin tone, to acne-prone skin. And, just as I have done with my custom bags, every skincare product you see has been hand-created by me from start to finish with the utmost attention to quality and detail.

Being what I call a 'solopreneur' is a rewarding challenge. It keeps me on my toes and provides wonderful opportunities for growth and learning. But, the best part about hand-created items is the personal touch that makes sharing them so much more special. ♥ ♥ ♥
