This notebook is perfect for logging my daily exercise, and the bicycle on the front reminds me to get moving!

Christmas Wreath - Embroidered Card with Noel


Hand embroidered paper goods, made one stitch at a time

My name is Alison Grande. I live with my husband, our 2 young children and our dog in New York. Koto offers hand embroidered paper goods with a modern aesthetic. I design and execute each item, embroidering the cardstock stitch by stitch. The name “Koto” is from my middle name, which was my Japanese great grandmother’s name. I take inspiration from my Japanese and Scandinavian heritage, architecture, modern art and textiles from around the world.
