My name is Vanessa and I am the founder of A Branch & Cord.

Aside from a maker, I am a wife and a mama to 3 kids and a stepmom to 2 big kids. 

Originally from beautiful downtown Burbank, CA, I moved to the Portland, OR area in my mid 20's and I fell in love with the Pacific Northwest! 

In March of 2020, while pregnant with our 3rd, I picked up a macrame hobby which quickly led to A Branch & Cord coming to life. 


3 years into this business and A Branch & Cord is now resold worldwide in over 300 retailers and we have grown to a team of 5. I have been so lucky to find 4 amazing work from home moms who love creating right alongside me. 

We love to work with color and texture to create macrame goods, accessories, kits, wall decor, and rainbows. We regularly participate in pop-up markets and instruct DIY Rainbow workshops in our community. We also love to connect with makers and small businesses of all kinds so do feel free to message us and say hello! We love to collaborate with our retailers and support one another whether that's with giveaways, social support, or local in-person events. If you have an idea you'd like to see if we can create, just ask! We are always up for trying something new!

A Branch & Cord gives back to the LGTBQ+ community via the Trevor Project by donating a percentage of proceeds from its Pride/ Classic Rainbow colored products directly from our website.
