About Us


 Founded in 2009, An Open Sketchbook is the design studio of Edgar and Suzanne Cabrera. Drawing inspiration from daily life, the couple collaborates on a wide array of cheerful paper goods and accessories loved by customers and retailers alike. In 2017, pairing their experience in retail design and visual merchandising, with a passion for gardening, Edgar and Suzanne opened The Tiny Greenhouse, a home and garden shop in Greensboro, North Carolina. This brick-and-mortar storefront serves as a creative laboratory for the couple to feature An Open Sketchbook products alongside an ever-changing assortment of exotic plants and eclectic home goods.
