Jessye Grundlingh- founder of make this universe in Toronto, Canada
Hey! It's Jessye here, founder and maker behind Make This Universe.


Back in 2018- while trying (and failing!) to make my own DIY deodorant at home, I noticed a problem. I scoured the internet in search of a cute, beginner-friendly skincare kit like the DIY Kits I was used to buying for traditional crafts such as knitting- but couldn't find ANYTHING, let alone reliable information about DIY Skincare.


Further research showed there was a lack of accessible, curated craft kits for creative experience seekers like myself, in many categories beyond DIY skincare!


This lack of modern craft kit's seemed like a tragic oversight to me- since crafting has been so important for my own mental health. 


This is how our mission was born: I wanted MTU to be the place that provides people- in search of a curated, hands-on creative outlet- with all the tools, materials and instructions they'd need to fulfill their creative desires... in desirable, modern, effective DIY Kits that are good for the planet, too.


And since we believe the best way to predict the future is to create it- our mission is to inspire you to Make This Universe Your Own!


Whether you're learning how to make candles or natural skincare- we know the first hand benefits of crafting: from improving your mental health, getting the benefit of customized results, or simply re-thinking how things are made, and who made them. Not only is DIY-ing a benefit to you, but it can also inspire more sustainable choices as we move to a slower, handmade made world.


We hope you'll follow along for the rest of our journey- we can't wait to Make This Universe with you!
