About

❤️ Funky fashion accessories • Handmade from vintage, reclaimed and new fabrics in Calgary, Canada • Definitely unique and mostly one of a kind ❤️

My name is Leonie, I am the owner, designer & maker at Maple And Oak Designs. Originally from lovely Lübeck in northern Germany, I travelled in Australia, Latin America, North America and Europe for a couple of years until found my current home in sweet Calgary close to the Canadian Rockies.

It is my passion to design and sew vintage - inspired funky and bold fashion accessories. For the most part, I like to work with reclaimed and vintage fabrics but sometimes I can’t resist the temptation of a bright new fabric. Incorporating up-cycled fabrics in my designs enables me to create unique and one of a kind items while minimizing my impact on the environment. I believe in living as Eco - conscious as possible and what better way than spending your days in a thrift store finding the perfect fabrics?

I am also the writer of "The Maple And Oak Diaries" - the Maple And Oak blog which I really enjoy as it gives me the opportunity to combine my background in History and English with my work as an Indiepreneur. The Maple And Oak Diaries cover topics that are dear to me: Maple And Oak news (of course), travels (with a handmade twist), tutorials about my craft and art projects, funky accessories (did I mention I'm an accessory addict?), bi-national relationships & sharing the (handmade) love. You can find it here: www.mapleandoakdesigns.com

My husband Guillaume (He’s from Québec, it’s pronounced “Ghee-yom”) supports me where he can. He’s not only a fantastic model but also a great photographer. Best of all: he helps me load the car before craft shows! That absolutely deserves honorary Maple And Oak Designs member status.

Thanks for reading my story,
♥ Leonie ♥
