Studio Carta Scissors
These sleek scissors are clever, keen, snipping machines! Each of our selected clippers are ideally suited for textiles—from yarn and thread to ribbon and twine. And with handles that are large enough for most fingers, you can clip away—easily, smoothly, and accurately. (Those precision sharpened, carbon steel blades help, too.)
Comfortably weighty in hand, the Dressmaker Shears (8”/20.3cm) have a sharp, serrated blades crafted with hard-tempered steel—powerful and precise! With 24-karat gold plating on the handles, these shears are handsome and hardy.
Finely engraved and sharply efficient, the Hare Scissors (4”/10cm) are a reproduction of a 19th century pair representing a sprinting hare! Designed for detailed work with paper or textile, the adorable figure of the hare is coated in a thin layer of 24-karat gold.
Our Scarlet Scissors are a diminutive 3 ¼” (9 cm) tall and they slip easily into your notions kit or project bag. We’re offering an optional leather sheath (companion to the Scarlet Scissors) for poke prevention purposes. Sold separately, the sheath slips neatly over your snips, protecting fingers and project bags alike.
The black Silhouette Scissors (4”/11cm) are just the thing for detail work in both paper and textile.
The delicate and lovely Le Piccole Scissors (2 ¼”/ 6 cm) are extremely sharp—perfect for embroidery, knitting or any project that requires precision. We couldn’t decide between the gold-plated or the scarlet soft-touch handles—so we brought in both!
The stately Florentine Scissors (5”/13cm) are as precise as they are beautiful. With handles coated in 24-karat gold and powerful, hard-tempered steel blades, these scissors slice through textiles, ribbon, and paper—and look good doing it.
The Paris Scissors (4”/10cm) are a reproduction of a 19th century pair celebrating the completion of the Eiffel Tower in 1889! Sure to please any francophile, the sharply pointed blades handle detail work with ease.
These scissors are imported from Italy exclusively by Studio Carta—a design studio known for their custom ribbons, unique accessories, and fine stationery. They work directly with manufacturers who have been using the same materials and practices since the 19th century.
