Artist & Founder - Leslie Taylor


 Meet the artisan behind the brand

➵ Behind a brand, there is always a human. Behind this brand is me! My name is Leslie & I am the founder & maker behind the Maple Dragonfly Co. 

➵ What started as a hobby quickly flourished into a business that I love. I started creating macrame products out of my love for working with my hands. Creating macrame plant hangers, candle lanterns, & wall hangings to decorate my home gave me a great way to infuse my boho style into everyday items. 

➵ I never thought to sell my one-of-a-kind items before - but after being encouraged by my fellow market friends - I decided to give it a try, and I am so glad I did.

➵ After selling out of MANY items at my first market, I realized I could turn my hobby into a business - so that's what I did. 

My Artisan Shop Is Home To Handmade Macrame & Home Decor Items For All


  • When crafting my handmade macrame creations, I only use materials from brands I trust. I focus on creating high-quality, one-of-a-kind products that are environmentally conscious (materials I use are made with 100% raw natural cotton cord.) So you can feel good about the products you purchase from me. 

Get To Know Me

  • Working Life: When I am not creating macrame or boho home decor items - I am working as a registered nurse!
  • Drink of Choice: I am obsessed with coffee and probably drink more coffee than water every day.
  • One of my Favorites: I LOVE the show Gilmore Girls & have seen it about 100 times (if not more) - Here is a Fun Fact! I drove to Canada for the pop-up event they had and met some of the characters.

    Lovely words

    "My name is Kayla, and I recently purchased a pair of your earrings at the Fall Fest in Hardwick. I wanted to take a moment to tell you just how much I love them and how many compliments I have had on them already. Your work is beautiful, and in times like these, it’s important to share that with people who create these pieces. "

    -Kayla, Happy Customer

    Kind words

    "My plant-hanger from Maple Dragonfly Co is so beautifully made and adds the perfect accent to my plant. It helps hold my plant up where it can reach the best sunlight, the leaves can grow, and it gives me more space wile adding an elegant look that fits in with any decor. I ordered tan to fit my space but they have so many colors and different designs!"

    -Rachael, Happy Customer
