We adore the handmade & Old World aesthetic, and this is reflected in our designs. Borrowing from ancient Chinese ceramics techniques - we love beautiful, yet functional, objects!

Where do you sell your crafts presently?

Why are handmade crafts important to you?
We love the organic look each of our pieces have rather than a mass produce item...each piece is therefore a one of a kind; an original in itself.
