our story


Hitch and Arrow was founded in 2017 by Amy Barker, a macrame artist herself, who loves experimenting with all things fibre.

Back in 2017 whilst on maternity leave Amy saw that macrame was gaining popularity but noticed a lack of high quality macrame string and rope in the UK. Amy made it her mission to source these materials for UK crafters and artists.
