Our Story

521handmade started in 2014 when Melissa starting designing pillows in her tiny studio apartment, using the kitchen counter as her workspace. She fell in love with product design and decided to dive head first into being a creative business owner.

Today, Melissa designs and creates every 521 product in her warehouse studio and hosts workshops to help others find their creative spark! Her collections are sold in over 30 stores across the United States.

We'd love to connect with you! Email Melissa@521handmade.com to chat about kitties, personalized pillows, wholesale opportunities, workshops, and anything relating to crafty things or running your own creative business!
