The Manca Studio


About Us

Purveyor of the Hand-woven Lightship Basket Purse, Custom Lighting, and Furniture. Centuries of tradition with a modern vibe. Weave Joy & Shine Your Light.

After washing ashore on Nantucket Island, I found myself in need of a hobby. Combining a passion for Nantucket with a love of all things crafty, Lightship Basket weaving was the perfect fit. The Manca Studio is a culmination of my 25+ year design career. It incorporates my love of design, artisanal craftsmanship, and a juxtaposition of history and modernity. The Christina Rose Collection is a carefully curated compilation of lightship basket purses, furniture and lighting with a distinctly modern vibe.

As a full time resident, you can find me weaving joy into my day in my weaving studio, on the beach, or in town all year long. After all, life isn't just about baskets.
