Indie Inspiration: QuellyRue Designs ... Hand Crochet And Artistic Fancies

Written By: MIM!QuellyRue Designs is a collection of handmade crafts, art, and accessories that is full of bohemian flare, whimsical, yet refined and reminiscent of a love for Africa. Racquel Dwomoh (pronounced Ju-moh), the self-taught designer behind QuellyRue Designs, prides herself on her chic, quirky, imaginative, super cute accessories bursting with color, texture, print and intricate patterns. These reflect her colorful memories growing up as a child in the buzzing city of Accra, Ghana, and her Afro-Caribbean American roots.

Racquel has been passionate about art and design for just about as long as she can remember, and she loves nothing better than to spend the day covered in paint, surrounded by scraps of fabric, all tangled up in yarn. "QuellyRue Designs was born out of my passion for handmade crafts and a vision for extracting beauty from objects that are seemingly ordinary, creating beautifully handcrafted merchandise to complement all occasions." Indeed, for Racquel, the creative direction of QuellyRue Designs is to express all the creative wanderings in her mind, her art, and her personal style through luxurious designs that are artistic, whimsical, and necessary. “I am a strong believer that the truest expression of love is art. The purest part of you is that which is created, born and nourished in your heart. My hands live to I create.”
