Our Story

Straw and Gold is a collective of artists and makers.

Who we are

Straw and Gold is a design collective & general store that showcases a talented collective of artists and makers.  We are constantly exploring and searching for new talent on the rise. Our small shop contains items that are handmade and built to last.  Owned and carefully curated by Lauren Musacchio, Straw and Gold began on a drive up to the mountains and was nurtured over a home cooked meal in Brooklyn, NY. Now, here we are, watching it all come together! Many of the items featured and sold are pieces that we enjoy in our own home. 

The Artists and Makers

Local artisans and crafters contribute to the beauty that fills these pages. We search and search for the best. Here it is, all in one place. With each piece, we tell the story behind it's creation. Read about each one of our makers

100% Handmade

We are 100% handmade and handcrafted. Enjoy these pieces and remember that what you are receiving is one-of-a-kind. We aim to stock a list of items that are lasting, special, and make your everyday better. 


We host classes and workshops throughout Brooklyn, New York for the creative community. Some classes include: Fermentation 101, Tapestry Weaving, Knitting and Shibori Tie-Dye. Check our blog or our event page for a class schedule. 

Pop Up Shop

We travel around and set up shop. Please check our blog and Instagram for quick updates. If you'd like us to host a pop up shop in your space, shoot us an email



We work with homeowners & small businesses in pulling together elements to create spaces that focus on functionality, efficiency paired with strong & rich design. Straw & Gold collaborates with some of the most exciting independent designers today to plan spaces that create a sense of place for both the objects they  hold & the people that experience them.
