About Emamory

Emamory is a meaningful word which took me quite some time to find as I did not want to pick just any name for my business. It had to be something special for me. I am Brazilian and when I decided to start this business I thought I should somehow connect my country of origin with where I live now (New Zealand). And New Zealand has great influence from the Maori culture.

I started searching for the Brazilian indigenous tribes and their languages and I found the Galibi. They live mainly in Brazil and Bolivia. I also looked for other indigenous tribes such as the Tupy-guarani however I needed a name which was easy to pronounce both in Portuguese and English and that had a special meaning as well.
Then I found “Emamory” which in Galibi language means “aurora”. And that was meaningful! We have the beautiful phenomenon of Aurora Australis in New Zealand (you can see it right from Stewart Island or Lake Tekapo, for example). It was just perfect and beautiful!

I have a strong connection with nature. When I`m not crafting, I love to be outdoors observing the weather, birds and plants. I also have a small garden of my own where I grow some flowers and veges. And because of this connection I feel like it is super easy to create pieces which represent nature elements. My favourite creations are always nature related.

I hope you like it and that you may appreciate nature as well as the way I inspire your life through my art.

Emamory, your place for handmade custom unique gifts.

With love, Thayane
