Hi, I'm Laura, thanks for checking out my site! I re-discovered the art of macrame in 2015 and fell in love. I work out of my home studio in Rochester, NY creating modern macrame decor. Every piece is handmade using all natural materials and designed with careful attention to detail.
Before starting Hitch + Cord I worked in corporate marketing for over 10 years. Sitting at a desk all day was never really my thing so I'm excited for the change of pace this business has brought me. I'm a huge animal-lover and have a sweet and funny dog who we adopted from our local shelter. I also love old houses, antiques, traveling (all of my pieces are named after my travels), and finding "junk" along the side of the road. I keep all of my finds in a unique 60's contemporary home that I share with my creative husband and our pup.
