Buyers are raving!

This shop got multiple 5-star reviews in the past 7 days.

Announcement    Welcome to my small design studio located in Oregon's Rogue Valley! I make matchboxes and other thoughtful home goods inspired by the simple things in life: stargazing, beachcombing, gardening, reading, cooking, the great outdoors... As a lover of all things vintage, I see the matchbox itself as a tiny little piece of a bygone era that still resonates with us today and reminds us to sit down, light a candle, and spend the evening catching up with friends or devouring a good book.

Thank you for supporting a passionate small business and handmade goods!

Paper for People

A passion for the simple things in life - stargazing, beachcombing, gardening, reading, cooking, the great outdoors - plus a fascination with tiny things and an obsession with all things golden led to the idea behind this design studio specializing in matchboxes, and more recently delving into a broader range of other thoughtful objects for the home and special occasions. I love bringing materials to life with my unique perspective as a trained designer, intrepid explorer, and avid maker. Most of my items are hand-pressed with metal dies on a vintage foil stamper that is the mainstay of my studio. My work embraces rich topics like botany, astronomy, and cartography through my own contemporary aesthetic lens. Fresh, clean graphics meet whimsical, warm illustrations and, as always, are stamped onto long-lasting paper goods that fit your needs, be it for everyday writing, decorating, and relaxing, or special occasions like weddings, parties, and heartfelt gifts.

Studio Portmanteau is happily based out of my home studio in Oregon's gorgeous Rogue Valley. Each product sold in my shop is a one-of-a-kind creation designed and made by me in the Pacific Northwest. Many of my items are also available as retail items in a selection of boutiques, shops, and galleries. Studio Portmanteau has been featured on Architectural Digest, Design*Sponge, MyDomaine, Etsy Blog, Etsy Finds, The Faire Blog, BRIDES, and Rock My Wedding, among other websites & blogs.

So where did the shop name come from? A portmanteau is an old French word for a box or suitcase that opens into two equal parts (much like my matchboxes). The shop logo is derived from an imagined antique lock on an old leather suitcase, something like one would carry on a long train journey. And just how do you pronounce portmanteau? It rhymes with studio (port-man-toe). :)

1% of all proceeds goes to support literacy and access to books for communities in need, and another 1% of all proceeds goes to support environmental stewardship for communities in need. Different organizations are chosen each month to receive the contributions.

Thank you for striking a spark with my handmade goods!
