The Alessaro story began on a 2500 mile long road trip. Along the way, I toured a stunning church and bought keepsakes. That gave me an idea to create the Santa Barbara Mission ornaments and to sell these in local gift, specialty, and souvenir stores. Nineteen years later after an exhaustive search, a good friend made, and the will not to give up, I made that dream come true.
Welcome to Alessaro Designs! We now sell over 250 beautiful handmade keepsake designs that we make for local and global institutions alike.
The Alessaro mission is simple: through our cards and gifts, we encourage friends and families to spread their memories of places traveled, people met, and celebrate lives well lived.
