Vanessa MacLean


Handmade Crafts made from unique fabrics and textiles. Bespoke products made to order. Handcrafted by Vanessa.
In 2019 I finally decided a change of course with my working career, quit my full time employment to follow an idea of starting my own handcrafted business. With a love of textiles and working with my hands I created GiftNess, bespoke gifts handcrafted to order. My husband & I used the 2020 Lockdown to create a dedicated space in the back garden of our house, where I can now create Handcrafted gifts with the utmost detail. Originally from Australia but now settled on Mull I have always loved to travel looking for new designs and ideas especially when it comes to working with textiles. A lot of my fabrics come from Australia but with my wings clipped in 2020 I have started searching closer to home for textiles I am happy to work with. Whilst still in the very early stages of development I hope in the future to work full time on developing GiftNess as a brand.
