Announcement    About me

I still have some drawings I did in college to work a free theme: it was my first set of drawings, and called it "The school with the passage of time". I felt very proud when my teacher told me he wanted to buy them for what for me was a small fortune at age 16.

I did not dare to study Fine Arts, however, I have always found my "Neverland" in drawing and painting.

For many years I was dedicated almost exclusively to oil painting, but as the space on the walls was ending, I have cultivated other techniques.

The painting on fabric was a great discovery: what about giving another style to a pair of jeans?

One thing led to another and by testing different materials, I came to silk.

Painting on silk is much like watercolour painting, a medium that I discovered when I started to travel because of my job: a small box of watercolours and small format papers can be taken anywhere.
Since 2001 I paint in silk and until recently it was a private pleasure, limited to personal use, gifts for family and friends. But in 2013 I began to study the possibility of selling my paintings on silk. I did a little market research visiting museums and shops. When the Balenciaga Museum in Getaria showed interest in my work and asked me for some samples, I made ​​the decision to launch into the adventure of working as a silk and fabric painter. Immediately I participated in my first craft fair, the 35th Craft Fair of the Basque Country in Renteria in 2013.

On my website martinamenke.com you will find a small sample of my passion, I hope you'll enjoy it and, if you feel like getting in contact, I'd love to know your opinion.

Política de Devoluciones

En el momento de la entrega, compruebe que el artículo se corresponde con la factura correspondiente y que su estado es correcto. De no estar en perfecto estado, deberá comunicármelo en las siguientes 24 horas.

Aunque es muy improbable, ya que reviso minuciosamente todos los envíos, garantizo el cambio de los productos defectuosos por otros del mismo tipo, siempre y cuando se confirme el defecto.

Si cuando reciba el pedido, decide que ya no lo quiere, dispone de un plazo de una semana (a contar desde la recepción del producto) para devolverlo. En este caso los gastos de envío correrán a su cuenta (tanto de ida como de vuelta). Una vez recibido el producto y comprobado su correcto estado, le devolveré el importe del mismo descontando los posibles gastos generados.

Si lo que sucede es que el artículo no le queda bien y desea cambiar de talla, por ejemplo, el procedimiento es el mismo. No hay problema siempre y cuando éste se halle en perfectas condiciones. Una vez recibida la pieza, le enviaré otra con la talla que escoja o le devolveré el importe, según prefiera. Lo que debe tener en cuenta es que los gastos de transporte generados en las devoluciones correrán siempre a su cuenta, a no ser que se deban a errores míos.

Todas las devoluciones deberán ser autorizadas: previamente deberá escribirme para solicitar la autorización de la devolución, indicando el motivo de la misma y el número de factura.

Garantía

Todos los artículos han sido pintados y/o teñidos a mano por mí.
Todas las piezas son de seda natural 100% si no se indica expresamente otra composición.
Cada pieza es única, ya que se trata de un producto hecho de forma artesanal.
Pueden encontrarse pequeñas irregularidades en el tejido que se deben a las características de la seda natural.
Con los cuidados adecuados la seda y la pintura pueden durar mucho tiempo. Aconsejo la lectura de las instrucciones de mantenimiento.
En el caso de cualquier reclamación, mi responsabilidad se limitará a la reposición de la pieza por otra de similares características.
