Who we are and our history
Who we are is who I am. My name is Thayane, I`m married to Raphael and we currently live in New Zealand. I have bachelor degree in Business Administration and I`m completely passionate for handcrafts. Have been developing my skills at handmade items my entire life at different rhythms and periods of time as I have people from my family very talented at it as well who taught me some techniques.
I like to say everything began in 2010 when I was studying back in Brazil and a very good friend of mine, Fernanda, invited me to her place for coffee and chat and also offered to show me how to make fabric roses – so I could have a new hobby.
I loved those roses and started making many more of them as gifts to my family and friends. However, I was a super busy lady working, studying at Uni plus languages, coordinating a youth group at the church and more so I did not have a chance to make it a business back then. In 2011 I then met Raphael, my husband.
We moved to New Zealand in February/2016 and few months later I decided it was time to get back into my lovely hobby. One day shopping some flats of fabric and other materials and I started it all over again. How passionate I am about it! It makes me really happy!
When I had about 5 jars of fabric roses I looked at them and thought “I really could be selling them on the market”. Later on I also introduced some other handmade products which made my shop even wider. But internet now opens up an incredible door to the entire world and I am very excited to take this opportunity.
I`ve since specialized myself at felt and fabric handmade items for special occasions such as weddings, baby born, birthday gifts and more. My aim is to turn peoples` dreams into reality through lovely good quality handmade items that are not only beautiful but also useful and a forever memory of such special occasion.
So browse around, get to know what I do. Remember I also love customizing things so if you have an idea, let`s chat! I would be very happy to be part of your history as well as having you as part of mine. And don`t forget, follow Emamory and stay tuned on our news and promotions!
