We are so proud to have our Pretty Proteas placemats featured in Glamour‘s Shop ZA section this past month! And no better time to remind you all to consider shopping local this Christmas : )
Order now from the Handmade By Me online shop to have your lovely locally made items delivered straight to your door…or have a look at our various stockists to see where you can find lots of lovely local gifts this festive season.
With Christmas right round the corner, everything is a little crazy this time of the year, so… we have decided to give in to our end of year craziness and offer you all a little something special to say thanks for supporting us this year! We are going to be offering you R100 off all of our scarves/sarongs throughout the month of December. That means our scarf/sarongs have been reduced from R540 to R440 each! With savings like that, why not add in a few extra items, skip those post office blues, and have your order couriered to you overnight! (Just so you know the post office is actually back in action, the strike is officially finally over as of today…although delays are still expected.)
This special will only be available online in December through the Handmade By Me online shop, BUT because our lovely stockist SAM (South African Market) is having their first birthday this month we are going to join forces and offer you the same special there too! And to kick that all off, SAM are having a Birthday party next week for First Thursdays Cape Town, and you are all invited. There will be chocolate and there will be bubbles…and there will be 10% off a fantastic selection of perfect-for-Christmas gifts! You do not want to miss out on this one, hope to see you there!
The scarf/sarong discount will be only while stocks last, but also available on any scarf/sarong orders placed in December so best you get your Handmade By Me shop on immediately… from December 1st : )
We have added a few new items to our product range lately, mostly all of which just happen to be monochrome. We wanted to share them with you here!
Firstly we have a new placemat design hurrah! Geometric Monochrome. I know a lot of you out there are scared of a bit of colour so here is something that will work on your table every single time. Try mixing and matching with different monochromatic patterned napkins, or incorporate just a bright splash of colour like a bright burnt orange or even a sunny yellow, to be honest pretty much any colour will go!
We have a new stockist in New York opening up very soon (I know!!!!) and we just sent off our first order of products for them which included this Origami Birds scarf/sarong. I am going to make to order these so get in touch if you would like one too!
We have also changed our Origami Birds napkins. These ones are the same as the other new range napkins, 30 x 30cm in size and nice and thick, and available in sets of 2 in black and blue.
Our lovely stockist the Green Elephant Collective is having a competition where you can win the Handmade By Me scarf of your choice! Its so easy all you have to do is pop over to their website, tell us which of the below is your favourite, and you can win it! Our new scarves are super soft and can be worn as a scarf in Winter and as a sarong in Summer. We LOVE dual purpose products : ) Winner will be announced on 31 August. Good luck to you all!
Thanks so much to everyone who came to see the launch of our new range. We really had such a fantastic evening and couldn’t have done it without you!! For those who missed it, here are some pics of our beautiful little spot in the Department of Design, as well as a little powerpoint presentation below that will run you through all our new designs and products, including our exciting new easy-to-use Design Your Own Cushion Cover tool : )
We are busy editing the photos of our new products which we will be sure to show you real soon! In the meantime, please email us if there are any images you would like to feature and we will see what we can do to help speed things along. If anyone is interested in purchasing any items please email us with any orders, or if you are a stockist, please email us for a wholesale price list. The Handmade By Me online shop will be updated as soon as our photos are ready : )
Its been a very busy week (or rather couple of months) so far here at Handmade By Me HQ. Our new range has gone to print eeeeeeeeekkkkk and not only are we coming up with new designs, but new products as well. We are just so excited to show you all what we are working on….but I am afraid you will have to wait just a little bit longer…
However, I can show you a sneak peek of one of our new products….the decorative scarf! These are super soft and big and beautiful, and would work really well as a scarf in winter and/or even a sarong in summer : ) Our trial design was the pink flamingo and we have already had such great feedback on facebook and twitter. We can’t wait to start making and selling these with some of our new range prints. Let us know what you think…
And then how lucky are we to have our decorative placemats featured in the latest issue of SA Garden & Home. Home Front features their highlights from this month, from things to do and seasonal shopping to decor news and the best places to visit.
