From Melinda Rose Design: “My name is Melinda and I am the owner and designer at Melinda Rose Design. We are a small independent company based out of the Pacific Northwest (USA) that specializes in handmade wedding veils, hair adornments and lingerie. I began my company back in 2011. In the beginning, I started by working out of a small space in my home (corner of my living room) making little colorful hair flowers. I began to get custom requests from brides for veils, flowers and full bridal party hair flowers. I realized the business was no longer a hobby but a way for me to make a living doing what I loved! We now have a full range of bridal hair adornments, veils and this season we released our first mini lingerie collection.
Many of my designs are a reflection of my love for the the organic and simple elegance of nature. As a young child, my dad would take me hiking all the time. He loved being outdoors and was always pointing out the beautiful plants and animals that one might otherwise miss as a child. He instilled in me a deep love for nature’s simple beauty. He sadly passed away before seeing my business grow into anything more than a hobby. But I know he would have been so proud of me.”
“All of my accessories and lingerie are designed and handmade in my home studio with incredible attention to detail. I use high quality materials and classic artisan techniques to lovingly create each of my pieces so they can be treasured for years to come. I currently have an assistant who helps me with production several days a week. I work hard at sourcing many of my supplies from companies who produce items in the US or international companies known for their commitment to their workers, fair trade and environmental protection. We recycle and reuse everything we can.
I believe as a business my job goes beyond creating beautiful pieces for brides. We are strong supporters for the art of handmade and all the benefits that come out of this style of business. We plan our goals around building a company that pays a livable wage. We believe in giving back to our community and more specifically in contributing to the creation of a culture for each person to thrive.”
