Updated: Jan 7
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:

As a small business, I was invited by the META Business Events and Small Business Britain to 'Meta’s Small & Medium Business Christmas Reception' hosted at the Parliament on 13 December.
This event was an opportunity to speak to Meta, small businesses and directly to Members of Parliament about the experience of being a small business owner in the UK and feedback first hand what support is most useful. I was encouraged to invite my local MP to come down to the reception to hear more about my business too. And Andrew Rosindell, our local MP from Romford was able to send his associate to meet me at the event.

Handmade by Tinni in London has been selected as one of the nation’s 100 most inspiring small firms by the Small Business Saturday UK campaign, as it marks its ten-year anniversary.
Handmade by Tinni, Sustainable Textile Jewellery & Home Decor Brand was founded by Paulomi Debnath in 2020. It has been chosen to be part of this year’s SmallBiz100 line-up, which showcases impressive, independent businesses from across the nation.

Case study with B Daily. Read Here.
''The extent to which businesses are behind the curve becomes even more apparent with the research finding that 75% of consumers use social media to find out about products and services before buying. And this isn’t just online purchases – 74.6% of people looking at products on social media shop in store at least once a week.
Paulomi Debnath, who launched her London-based sustainable jewellery brand, Handmade by Tinni, just before the Covid pandemic outbreak in 2020, attributes much of her success to using social media to promote her products. She explains:
“In support of a launch earlier this year, our Spring Earrings and Necklaces range, I produced a series of short videos for my social channels, specifically reels and stories on Instagram, to drive interest and excitement.
Paulomi, who moved to London from India sixteen years ago and specialises in the art of traditional rope knotting crafts, adds:
“As part of the same launch campaign, I used social media to encourage customers to pick their favourite colours and material combinations. I believe in inclusivity and that extends as far as offering our customers the opportunity to be part of the creative process. The launch was a huge success, resulting in over 30 of the new pieces (retailing at £25 each) selling in the first week. Without social media, the business simply wouldn’t reach as many customers as we now do, it’s been a vital part of our success.”
