One-of-a-kind macrame designs and supplies

Thank you visiting Unfettered Co!

This little family business was born of a vision to build and sustain a creative community, and to be a part of a supportive group of makers.

My name is Janis, and I didn't really know quite how important creativity was for me until I started to play around with knots. That free play eventually transformed into a serious hobby. Shortly thereafter, it became my dream "jobby." And now, Unfettered Co is a family-run, home-based business which has been lucky enough to bring aboard some phenomenal talent.

We are grateful for all of the support we receive and treat each order (big and small) with the same attention to detail, emphasis on communication, and customer service. The most important thing to us is that you're happy with what we offer. That's puts the bounce in our step and fills us with the capacity to dream even bigger!

Our three main goals are simple: 1) quality; 2) affordability; 3) sustainability. We believe that beautiful fibre art should be accessible, and so Unfettered Co's collection is designed with a range of budgets at heart. We make every effort to reduce waste. Our packaging is always recycled, and often compostable. And our pieces are made from the same 100% cotton that we have on offer in the shop.

  • Janis Ledwell-Hunt

    Owner, Maker

    Janis created Unfettered on a whim and a dream. Having completed a PhD in English and teaching university, she found that fibre art unleashed the sorts of creative freedoms that she hadn't found working in academia. So she followed what she loved.

    Loren has been supporting Unfettered since its inception, and in 2019 he took the plunge to become a co-owner/operator and full-time in house metal-maker. With his 25 years of metalworking experience, Loren brings us an eye for precision and detail!

    Assistant, Maker, Designer

    Brooke has been with Unfettered since 2019. She began as a shipper, and quickly became our lead creative. Not only is Brooke a masterful macrame artist with years of knotting experience, but she's also a fearless mother of three young children.
