What we’re up to…

It has been a little while since we made the decision to close our doors and make some changes to our little business, and I thought maybe it was time for an update, as you may be wondering what we have been up to lately, or possibly where we are going.

Life sometimes has a way of deciding things for you even though you think you know better, and as much as we have spent most of our time wrapping up handmade by me and selling off all our last stock, as well as enjoying a small break, the demand for our products is still going strong. And so, with that in mind, we have decided to keep our wholesale orders open for a little while longer. Our online shop will continue to sell our fabrics and wallpapers, but anyone looking for any other products will need to purchase directly from our list of stockists.

We have also been very fortunate to have had some exciting bespoke design projects on the go. Amongst others, we made slippers for Ellerman House and introduced tote bags to the range of products we previously created for Klein Constantia, and we have a number of other exciting opportunities still in progress or in the pipeline. This for me has been very serendipitous, as well as creatively rewarding,  and I am very excited to see where it goes.

If you’re still not sure what the hell we’re doing, or maybe you’re wondering how we can work together, these are our core services on offer below.

Design Service

Handmade By Me has extensive experience in designing and developing prints and patterns that can be applied to any surface including apparel, home furnishing, wall decor, gift items, accessories and paper goods.

We also offer a full graphic design service from logos and branding to newsletters and web banners.

If you are looking for any graphic or pattern/graphic design assistance, or possibly a design collaboration (which we LOVE), please email us for more info and rates.

Design & Product Service

We offer a custom design and print service on all our available fabrics and wallpapers. Whether you have a design in mind, or if you need design assistance, we can have the products printed for you.

We also assist other businesses with designing, creating and producing bespoke ranges of high quality locally-made products that are unique to them. Some of our clients include The Trading Store at Spice Route, Klein Constantia, Ellerman House and Singita Game Reserve.

If you are a hotel or shop looking to have some bespoke products made specially for you please email us for more info.

Here are some custom projects we have worked on previously.

Wholesale orders

If you are interested in stocking some of our products, please email us for a catalogue and wholesale price list. Please note minimums do apply and we do not offer products on consignment.

Online shop

Our fabric and wallpaper are still readily available to order online. And we still have a few more items left on sale if anyone is looking for any last-minute bargains.

And if you are a customer looking to purchase any of our products specifically, we would be happy to point you in the direction of your nearest stockist.

Countdown to Christmas…

How is it that Christmas is almost here already? How did it happen so fast? How did we not realise? Where has the year gone? WTF? We cannot believe that is is almost that time of the year already!

And because we know so many of you are still looking for those last-minute gifts, or that something special for that someone special, we have decided to see what we can to help you at the last-minute this festive season.

Order online, or pop into our store, and we will gift wrap those orders beautifully for you. Last date for orders in time for Christmas by post is Sunday 17th December, and last date for orders via courier is Wednesday 21 December. 

We are staying open (in store and online) right up until Saturday 24th December, and we have also decided to stay open this Friday 16th December for the Day of Reconciliation.

We are also offering you something a little different this Christmas where for any orders which include one of our Christmas stockings, we will cover the cost of your shipping. Just make sure your order contains at least 1 Prickly Pears Christmas Stocking and that you use the discount code “ChristmasStockingFreeShipping” when checking out, and consider your order gift-wrapped and delivered to your door. Feel free to order as much as you like, as long as your order includes at least 1 Christmas stocking.

We are going to be taking a small break between Christmas and the 9th of January. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all so much for all the support you have given us this year. It has been a crazy one and we couldn’t have done it without you. We would like to to wish you all a merry Christmas (if you celebrate), and happy holidays and season’s greetings to all : )

See you in 2017.
