About BayTraderCo

Sales 797
On Etsy since 2016

Hi, my name is Liz and I made the ultimate sea change back in 2013. After living the fast-paced corporate life in Sydney for what seemed forever, I packed up my belongings and moved to the wonderfully relaxed seaside village of Nelson Bay on the NSW coast.

Living life in the slow-lane, gave me time and the opportunity to explore my creative side. I got back in touch with my childhood love of fibre arts, sewing, knitting and macrame. Always looking for more fibre arts to explore I found a new love; handcrafting rope bowls and baskets.

I established my business, Bay Trader Co. in late 2016 when I realised I needed an outlet for my new creative pursuits. Finding daily inspiration from the Bay, much of my work has a 'coastal meets boho' vibe to it. I love working with cotton rope, it's so tactile, whether it be creating baskets and bowls or working on macrame wall hangings.
