The Coley Made Promise

Creating one-of-a-kind pieces that stand out. 

Always handmade, always unique, quality products

love letter from our creator.

Hi! 👋 I'm Cole.

I create small batch, handmade products that cultivate confidence and self-expression.

One of the things I'm often asked is "How did you get started in all this?"

I've been creative for as long as I can remember.

I started making cards for friends and family when I was just a kid. That's how Coley Made came to be! In fact, it all started because of a little trademark I drew on the back of one of my cards: "Coley Made."

A few years after I graduated with a degree in interior design, I found myself stuck in an office job that wasn't doing it for me. I was stagnant. 

Then, the universe said "hold my beer".

(I'll share more about that story in a future blog post.)

I was forced to do a lot of soul searching that cracked me open spiritually, which led me on a search for how to best serve others through my creative work.

As time went on, I began to explore different mediums and techniques.

From making bracelets to weaving wall hangings, I began to explore all sorts of mediums and techniques until eventually settling into sublimation and paper art. These mediums allow me to combine my love for creative expression with my love for handmade, quality goods.
