About

Drifters, who are nesting at the moment, with a love for traveling and collecting textiles from around the world.

I make pillows and zippered pouches (and sometimes some other things!) using beautiful, well-traveled textiles that we have collected. Drift and Nest was created to be a creative outlet as well as a place to showcase and sell things that we had collected while traveling or made ourselves. I really got into sewing and creating after buying a bunch of gorgeous handwoven Guatemalan textiles a couple of years ago. I kept staring at them on my shelf for the better part of a year, thinking, “what the heck am I going to do with all this beautiful goodness?” Then I watched some YouTube videos on how to sew, pulled out my sewing machine that I had had for years without ever using, and started sewing! I went in a few markets in the fall and winter of 2015 and opened my Etsy shop in December 2015.

Hello! And welcome to Drift and Nest! Thank you for stopping by and checking out our handmade and well-traveled items. We love the vagabond life, and hope you enjoy the items that we have hand-selected on our travels or made to share with you!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Due to the vintage nature of most of the textiles used, please contact me with any questions and concerns BEFORE placing your order, as returns will only be allowed on a case-by-case basis.

Vintage items may show normal signs of wear (spots or marks). These slight blemishes are what give the textile it's unique quality and, therefore, will not be considered defective.

Indigo items have all been washed to get any excess dye out but please use caution around light coloured clothing, couches, bed linens, etc as the dye may still bleed!

Care instructions: due to the vintage and handwoven textiles used and/or some of the dyes, please spot clean or dry clean only!
Shipping
At this time, I am only able to ship my pillows and tablecloths/large textiles to Canada and the USA because of the high cost of shipping. I'm trying to sort out a less expensive option for international orders! Please send me a message if you are not in Canada or the USA and are interested in an item and I can research the best shipping method. Thank you :) Zippered pouches can be shipped internationally, though!

Items will be shipped within 1 - 3 days of purchase via Canada Post, unless otherwise noted or discussed with us. Customs charges, duty, or taxes on international orders are the BUYERS responsibility; these fees are not included in the shipping.

After you place an order and it has shipped, we will provide you with a tracking number (if applicable). Please note that any delay in receiving your order could be due to customs or the postal company in your country, which is out of our control unfortunately!

Estimated delivery service via Canada Post:
- within Canada: 2 - 9 business days
- USA: 4 - 10 business days
- international: 4 - 8 weeks
