Interviews/ Features / Guest Blogs
We belong to this incredible creative community and have been blessed with some amazing interviews and features that covers our journey. Grateful and truly humbled.
Many of these interviews cover my design journey so far and they love that our brand is all about sustainability and vibrant, bold colour. Some also find it inspiring that I founded my brand, in 2020 just before the pandemic hit!
Handmade by Tinni was launched to address the lack of colourful, fun biodegradable jewellery for fashionistas who love expressing their personality with unusual, statement jewellery pieces. We want our designs to bring joy, inspire confidence and encourage ethical living.
Some if these features focus on the traditional art-form of our designs that is the art of traditional rope knotting crafts and processes like macramé which we specilise to create colourful, unique and bold designs.
Here are some of the highlights:
