Thank you so much for visiting my website.
I’m Jenny, a mother of two and the founder of Olé Macramé. I live in a small village on the Mediterranean Island of Malta.
I’ve been a passionate maker for as long as I can remember. I grew up watching my grandmother sew, knit and crochet. As a young child, I often found myself falling asleep at my school desk after staying up crafting until the early hours of the morning.
Whether it was handmade greeting cards, a school project I had procrastinated or a new stencilling pattern on my bedroom walls, I always seemed to be full of creative inspiration, especially in the early hours of the morning!
Fast forward some 25 years and I’m happy to say that I am creating once again. After a long break from making, I am so glad to have learnt the art of knotting. Olé Macramé has given me a creative outlet which suits my lifestyle so well.
To me, it is the perfect medium, one with seemingly endless possibilities. I love the colours, the softness of the cotton cords and the sustainable nature of it. I also love the fact that I can create around my children. As a mother, especially during a pandemic, it’s imperative that I can work from home and that I can safely work around my children.
