Knot Just Cords is based in Perth, Western Australia and was founded by Bree Smith in January 2018.
After feeling overwhelmed with the responsibilities of motherhood, Bree attended a macrame workshop where she discovered the therapeutic benefits of making.
It is through the creation of our DIY beginner macrame kits where we are encouraging women to take time out for themselves and learn something new the easy, fun and stress-free way.
Inspiration for the kits came out of Bree's love of teaching and wanting to show other busy women how easy it is to incorporate creativity into their day and discover the mindfulness it brings which can have such a positive impact on their mental health.
More to our brand than 'just' macrame
Self-care and mental health are topics Bree wants to bring to the forefront of conversations and to show how macrame allows the maker to be in the moment, forget their stresses and relax their mind which in turn helps reduce stress, anxiety and depression. How through creativity you can work on self-care which in turn will help with mental health. Macrame helped Bree with her struggle with postnatal depression after she had her boys and wants to show other mum's how it can also help them.
