Our Story

The Rag & Bone story begins with a gift, a hand-bound blank page journal Ilira made for my 23rd birthday. Touched and inspired, I was soon studying and practicing the art of bookbinding on my own. With a box of beautiful books in hand I sold my first journals to a small stationery store in Providence.

Within a few years I added new book styles and bindings including Photo Albums and Guestbooks. As demand for our products grew, I hired additional bookbinders to work in the studio. Retailers were carrying Rag & Bone books throughout New England.

Seeing the warm response to our efforts, we decided that Rag & Bone was ready to be a family business. Ilira, a hat designer, sold her small company and came aboard as our first office manager. Working together, Rag & Bone evolved to reflect both of our talents and led to the full range of books and keepsakes that we offer today.

This shared interest in the artful and handmade continues to feed both our lifestyle and business. Located in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, Rag & Bone Bindery continues to create objects of exceptional quality and design.
