The farragio story

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 toiletry bags, 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 skin care line was off and running. And, just as I have done with my custom bags, every skin care product you see has been hand-created by me.

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.
