    About Us

    Hemme is not your typical workroom! We are a modern, design-minded custom sewing and interior decorating studio. From drapery to bench seats — all of our handcrafted items are made-to-measure locally in Toronto, Canada. We expertly manage every detail of your project, from inspiration to installation. 

    Along with our expertise in window coverings, soft furnishings, and textiles – we also have serious decorating chops! We offer services ranging from a full room design to quick in-home consultations. Not sure what fits your design needs? Send us an email and we can advise.

    Hemme was founded by Jessica Grice and Mandy Milks. Here is a little more about them:

    Favourite colour:

    Mandy: A very dark, grey-ed out olive green — less kelly, more forest (can you tell by the branding?) I painted my kitchen cabinets that colour, so I am committed. 

    Jess: Blues, soft pinks, greens, blacks, whites. Simply. cannot. choose. 

    Favourite part about working for Hemme:

    Jess: I love learning every day and being part of a team that is so incredibly supportive of each other. I feel lucky to be a woman surrounded by fiercely dedicated and talented people. 

    Mandy: Working with a partner that has strengths where I don't, and lets me shine where I do. It's truly a blend of superpowers that makes for a great partnership. I also love that we created a place that supports working mothers!

    Favourite part about living in Toronto:

    Mandy: The mix of homes in the west end neighbourhoods. My idea of cardio is walking my favourite streets and peeking in windows, imagining what I would do to the space if I lived there. A touch creepy, but maybe all those people just need to get Hemme drapes already!

    Jess: It's the food scene for me. You really have to try hard to get a bad meal! Going on long walks/bike rides by the lakeshore or downtown to find a cool perfect weekend afternoon spent with family and friends. 

    What surprised you most about 2020 (besides the obvious)?:

    Jess: Our ability to adapt and overcome. We've all been challenged in more ways than anyone ever thought possible. Top that all off with being pregnant with your first child...

    Mandy: That I am capable of more than I thought was possible for myself. And that I am really good at making pillows!
