The origins of Miette Handmade

Four years ago, I gave birth to my beautiful son and my life changed from being about work and travel and friends and became focused on my new little family and my home life. I had always been creative and enjoyed making things for friends and family, but it wasn't until this time in my life when I had more time to create that I decided to make things to sell.

Having my own baby made me realise that new mums are bombarded with so much advertising around things that we supposedly need for our new babies. And my experience has been that most of that stuff is seriously overkill. What is needed is the basics. A few good quality things that do what's needed, and look beautiful while they're there!

When I was pregnant, I made my soon to be little son a small quilt. I wasn't quite sure what I would use it for or how much use it would get, but I wanted to make something special for him. It ended up being indispensable. Used as a blanket to tuck in around him in his pram, to keep him warm in his car capsule during long car trips, to put down on the floor for him to lie and play on and to cover him in his cot. I realised that there wasn't much like it in the market and decided to create this little business in order to share them with the world.

I love creating them... choosing fabrics, supporting local creatives who design and make their own fabrics, and with custom quilts, working with people to together create something that is unique, beautiful and to be treasured for years to come.
