CALIFORNIA DREAMING is a Berlin based macramé design studio dedicated to reviving traditional macramé techniques and styles in modern homes.
Founded by Dörte Bundt in 2013 when macramé was often considered an outmoded hobby, the label has grown from humble online beginnings to a full-service studio providing a range of designs from ‘ready-to-hang’ macramé models available online and in retail stores and larger commissioned works and installations for clients in galleries, restaurants and at a number of high-profile events.
Having been truly inspired firsthand by spectacular interiors witnessed throughout a road-trip along the West Coast of America, back in Germany, Dörte located and salvaged old instructional material, dead-stock rope, and taught herself basic macramé design principles to launch the first product range of California Dreaming.
As Berliners and international clients and fans have awoken to the fascinating macramé universe, demand to learn basic techniques compelled Dörte to host memorable workshops taking place in her lush Berlin studio, sharing her beloved craft, replete with music, treats and good vibes.
