Hi, I'm Jessica Nicole, owner of Jessica Nicole Bohemia. I have long harbored a passion for textiles and have been deeply inspired by the history of textile design that dates all the way` back to the Ancient Egyptians. Macrame has inspired me because it is also deeply rooted in history. From 13th century Arabic weavers creating some of the first known macrame, to 19th century sailors trying to barter their knotted knife handles and hammocks, 1970’s home decor, to its stylish revival now, macrame has many stories of its own.
I’m based in the San Francisco area, but I have a strong case of wanderlust, so I love to travel the globe and collect inspiration for art of my own wherever I go. I don’t believe in forcing myself into a box and going with the status quo, instead, I strive live a life of constant learning, and trying new things. I love to make art that creates happiness, and to share that happiness with others.
I make art to create happiness
I have a Associate of Arts in Fashion Design with an emphasis on textile science & design, and a Bachelor of Science in Business Marketing & Management from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM). I have many years of experience in retail management as well as visual design and merchandising. Jessica Nicole Bohemia has been a side project over the years that has grown and evolved into what it is today and I am so pleased to be sharing my macrame and design with you!
