About fableanddrifter

On Etsy since 2015

A 'marriage' of design and eco ethics...

Fable & Drifter sells distinctive, handcrafted and eco friendly braided handfasting (or handbinding) cords and jewellery inspired by the natural world and Celtic, medieval, ‘elven’ and rustic folk styles. It came into being after my own marriage: I couldn't find accessories for the ceremony that were just right, so I got busy and made them myself, and that's where the Fable & Drifter journey began.

I find Celtic, braided and rustic designs both beautiful and inspiring and I love the way they often honour natural forms and ancient symbols. Like the ancient Celts, I've always had a deep respect for nature and the environment. I also love the creative process, so bringing these elements together to create beautiful and eco friendly items is a pleasure and a delight, especially if it can bring happiness to others...

My products are made by hand to a high quality and combine the beauty of natural fibres, attractive, eco friendly colours and rustic styles. With a background in environmental issues and my love of nature, I'm increasingly drawn to using all natural materials in my products. My goal is to offer a fusion between environmental ethics and whimsical, rustic and ageless designs, and I continue to work towards removing as much synthetic material from the Fable & Drifter range as possible.

Fable & Drifter handfasting cords offer a more environmentally friendly option for eco conscious couples who wish to reflect their respect and love for nature within their handbinding ceremony. Many Fable & Drifter creations are based around hand-woven, eco dyed, hemp cord braids; hemp is one of the most environmentally sound and sustainable fibres available, as well as being extremely strong and flexible. Dyed with elegantly coloured, eco friendly, non-toxic and non-AZO dyes, Fable & Drifter hemp cord products are both beautifully coloured and 'green' all over!

Fable & Drifter is based in the Yorkshire Pennine hills in northern England, in the heart of the ancient Celtic area known as Brigantia; my home-based workshop is nestled into a picturesque valley just outside the small, rural town of Holmfirth. Inspiration from the natural world is just outside the window and all around!

Frequently asked questions
Can I order a custom item?

I have some listings which offer options, and which allow you to choose your own colours or pendants for example. You can find these in my shop, enabling you to adapt an item to ensure it will be just as you want it :)

Unfortunately I can no longer accept wholly customised orders. This is because there is often a great deal of time spent on communication and on working up samples when arranging custom orders. I have a part time job as well as doing my crafting work and I've had to accept that I simply don't have the time to manage custom orders as well as the rest of my Etsy shop - not if I want some time with my family too!

Care instructions

Care instructions are included with all Fable & Drifter items that require them.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Gift wrap is offered on all items in the Fable & Drifter shop. Please select the gift wrap option at checkout if you would like your order gift wrapped.

Marking your order as a 'gift'

Marking an order as a gift means that no pricing information will be printed on the packing slip for your item. Please note this is not the same as selecting gift wrapping.

If you want your item gift wrapped or if you'd like a gift note to be included with your order then you should mark your order as a gift first, and then additionally select the gift wrap and/or gift note option/s.

Please be aware that customs laws require sellers to disclose the contents and value on the exterior of all parcels sent outside of the sellers' trading area (eg. the EU, the USA, etc).

Overseas (non-UK) shipping fees

I offer low international shipping fees: please do click through to check these out if you like an item - the cost of shipping is lower than you might expect! :)
