About TuskTrunkHome

Sales 902
On Etsy since 2018

Design is my lifestyle.

The Lead Up:
I was first introduced to sewing all the way back in home-economics and, whilst I certainly enjoyed learning the skill and having a much needed creative outlet, time passed as it does and sewing, even creating, took a back seat to real life. That is, until one icy winter morning on my way into work when I was in a serious car accident that left me unable to continue to work. During my long recovery I became restless and looking for something to fill my days I decided to pull out my old, dusty sewing machine (I have since upgraded - don't worry!) I attempted to up-cycle some of my old clothes and had so much fun that I started asking family members if I could up-cycle their clothes to! Once I was back in the swing of sewing again, I was bit hard by the designing bug and jumped from up-cycling pre-existing designs to sketching and creating original pieces.

The Jump:
A couple of years ago, while attempting to furnish my new house, I had come to an impasse because I could not, for the life of me, find a single thing.. what I really mean to say is find that PERFECT thing! I knew exactly what I wanted to buy but it seemed those items only existed in my mind and instead of giving up or settling for the next best thing, I decided I would simply make all the pieces myself. I had no intention of ever selling my designs but my friends and family kept requesting to buy my products and everyone kept telling me I should be selling my products and they would not take no for an answer!

The Name:
My grandmother was an avid knitter and occasionally sewed as well. When I started to get back into sewing she was always excited to see my new creations and designs - she was one of my biggest supporters and the loudest to insist that I open a home goods shop.
Sadly, shortly before I moved into my new house, she passed away suddenly. When I finally decided to open my Etsy shop I wanted to honour her unwavering support of my craft in some way. Tusk + Trunk Home and our elephant logo is for her. She had a passion - some may call it an obsession- with elephants and her house was filled with ornamental elephants that she had collected over decades. After she passed away, I took some of her old clothes and turned them into stuffed elephants and gifted them to my family - my favourite design to date.

The Mission:
One of my favourite things about my business is being able to custom design items - or whole collections for people who are just like me: know what they want, can't find it anywhere - still want it anyway. So never shy away from messaging me with special design requests if you haven't had success finding exactly what you were looking for!
I am just getting started so bare with me there is a lot more to come for this shop!
