About

Handmade Rock'n'Roll Homewares

I've always loved art, music and popular culture, and from a young age decided that I was either going to be an artist or a writer. As a teenager I began a romance with 1950's clothes, music and cars and began to hang around op shops. I think I may have been born a few decades too late as I am quite happy to be surrounded with the style and music of the 1940's-60's. But being born where and when I was, I am lucky to have experienced the punk rock ethic of DIY.

I was taught to sew by my mother, and learned to embroider while sick with glandular fever. I studied Arts and worked at a printers before I qualified as a Graphic Artist. After working in advertising and graphic design for years, feeling burnt out and creatively festering, I got to travelling around as much of Europe, and eventually Mexico, as my income would fund. When I came home to Melbourne, I got clucky and had two children in quick succession, and then moved to the country.

It was then that all my collected experiences and ideas of what I wanted to do began to germinate... drawing, designing, sewing, painting... creating homewares and unique objects with recycled and vintage materials... inspired by vintage culture and what I'd seen on my travels... working for myself from my home... EmmaDilemma was born!

All of the items I sell on etsy have been made from new, recycled and vintage materials and are all handmade by me. I don't make large runs or output large quantities. Rather, the items are one-of-a-kind, all killer/no filler wares for your home, hotrod or boudoir.

Most of my ready made items can be customised to your desire in different colour combinations or fabrics, and Custom Orders are very welcome. I am also LGBTI wedding friendly, just contact me to discuss.

I believe my products are of a very high standard, and each item comes with Care Instructions. However if you are not happy with your purchase please contact me asap to discuss the problem.

I will provide a refund of the purchase price, or shop credit, or repair the item if it has been received in a faulty condition not due to postal transit. Any further postage costs will be paid for by the customer in this case. I recommend Registered, Express Post or Delivery Confirmation to guard against losses in the post.
