I have always loved designing and making, inspired by my mum who set up her own soft furnishing business when I was a teenager. I studied textile design at university and then went on to work for 10 years as a visual merchandiser for several high street interior and fashion brands. My work has always been influenced by my love of traditional crafts, handmade textiles, fashion, eclectic interiors and Scandinavian design.
Since having my own children, I have decided the time is right to go back to my textile roots, and, like my mum, fulfil my dream of running my own business and realise my passion for interiors and fashion. By-Me began when I joined a mums' craft group after moving to South East London. There, I met some inspirational mothers who had set up amazing creative businesses from home and this gave me the confidence to strike out on my own.
I'm currently loving the resurgence of the macrame trend but I plan to evolve my product range and experiment with other crafts and create new products.... so watch this space!
All products are designed and made by me, at home in South East London. If there's a particular design or colour you like, email me and I'll see what I can do - custom orders are very welcome.
