Isa Catto, of Isa Catto Studio in Woody Creek, has spent more than 25 years working in watercolor and mixed media. She is always inspired by the natural world and colors that are plentiful outside her window in her famous Mojo Garden.
During the pandemic, her studio produced masks and neck gaiters printed with Catto’s designs. Now, she is focused on selling products that “make the world more delightful.” To Catto, journals and scarves do just that.
Her mother, the late conservationist Jessica Hobby Catto, believed a scarf could add an instant shot of color, lift the face, and add miles to a simple wardrobe. The new collection includes two sizes of scarves (a classic square size or a larger size to be worn as a knotted scarf or a shoulder wrap) made from four different materials, from silk to organic cotton, each of which comes in three to six different pattern and color options.
The studio’s new Notebook Bar allows visitors to pick a cover, select page styles, and bind their own wire notebook. “I believe in the power of journaling,” says Catto.
New products are available online (isacatto.com) or at Isa Catto Studio in Woody Creek, which is open by appointment.
