Old woollen blankets and kangaroo leather offcuts add character to my products and form the basis of my range. I've always managed to see potential in something old or an item that would ordinarily be destined for the rubbish heap. The more we throw out and replace the more we diminish our resources unnecessarily. Artisan techniques are not about mass production they're about passion, detail and beauty, uniqueness, incorporating these into functional items while enhancing our everyday living experience... this is what leads me create the products that I do.

I'm inspired to preserve the natural beauty that surrounds us and encourage people to shop with consideration for our environment and our future by sustaining craftmanship skills that enable us to take care of ourselves and not rely so heavily on a supply chain to provide us with our needs. 

So many beautiful hearted people enter my world through my Etsy store & Creators Nest... for that I'm truly grateful. xx

About ByMarieNicole

Sales 332
On Etsy since 2009

Rescued & Repurposed

In my previous life as a portrait photographer I strived to capture the beauty of living through my lens, but these days as a mother of two with a passion for sustainability, I focus on handcrafting beautiful products for others to enjoy amidst their everyday activities.

My long time love of rescuing and repurposing an item with a past life, a hidden story or simply something that would ordinarily be destined for the rubbish heap... along with the desire to be able to strum a tune on my guitar with my family while immersing ourselves in the joys of our rural location, sitting out on our verandah at the end of a productive day filled with cooking up a storm, tending to our feathered and furry pets or veggie patch... but most of all to be able to share my adventure filled creative journey with my family, rather than always having to leave them behind while venturing off to capture the beauty in other people's lives... lead me to draw from skills learned growing up in a resourceful family, as well as those developed through formal education, experimentation, reading and asking many questions of other artisans with great experience in their field.

This is how 'by marie-nicole' was born and continues to grow, with my family in tow!
