About

Welcome to Angelatté Design!

About 16 years ago, an artist friend of mine nicknamed me Angelatté because of my love for coffee… I have been designing and creating with that name ever since. I have loved crafting & creating for as long as I can remember, whether it be creating art, home decor or gardening. I find all forms of creativity to be great for the spirit.
I have traveled to many places but have lived my whole life in the state of Iowa where it is beautiful with her rolling hills & expansive fertile fields of green. However, I do actually live in the city, the Quad Cities to be exact.

My nest was emptied recently and now I have no more excuses to not put my creative passion & energy to good use and fulfill my lifelong dream of owning my own business. I manage a law office by day and work in my studio by night; I have always…

My nest was emptied recently and now I have no more excuses to not put my creative passion & energy to good use and fulfill my lifelong dream of owning my own business. I manage a law office by day and work in my studio by night; I have always been a night owl. Credit for which goes to my Mom as well as my love for nature (& owls) and my creativity. Thanks Mom, I love you!! <3

Over the past few years I have discovered my passion for textiles and creating items with fabric. I especially love designing and making one of a kind handbags of felted wool sweaters. I don’t have a pattern that I follow; I sit down with each sweater and design, in my head, what each will become. I only work on one handbag at a time so I can devote all my creative energy to just that one from start to finish.

Besides felted wool sweaters, I also like to use various other earth friendly materials in my creations… such as remnant fabric, thrifted fabric, purse handles and belts and Eco-fi felt (made of 100% post consumer plastic water bottles) to name a few. I am inspired by nature. I continue to seek out ways to create what I desire without buying everything brand new.

I am a lover of Mother Earth and do what I can to help protect her.
