Tania Wojciechowski's Profile

About

Hello and welcome!
My name is Tania Wojciechowski and I love designing and making things out of natural materials.

Manusmade
"Manus" is the latin term for "hand", and here at manusmade all things handmade are celebrated. The latin infusion evokes a sense of history and tradition: people have been making things by hand for thousands of years. To me, it also represents the power of the hand - the ability to create and make. All manusmade products are modern goods for you and your home and are handmade of natural materials. I am a maker, and I love supporting other makers. I know you do, too.

Warm. Natural. Modern. Playful. These are the themes of manusmade. I believe that everyone should have access to good design everyday. Why can't an ordinary tea towel be beautiful as well?…

Sewing
I learned to sew at a young age from my mother. Always curious and inquisitive, I made things without patterns, tried new ways of doing things, put together interesting fabrics. This made my mother a bit nervous (patterns are to be followed!), but it quickly helped me learn how to work with fabric.

Shopgirl
I've always wanted to be a shop girl! When I was about 8 or 9 I would set up a shop in the playroom with a pretend register, receipt book, price tags and all. I would then make my younger brother buy everything. The poor guy, he'd have to undo the complimentary gift wrapping before he could play with his own toys!

Texture
This is my favourite word. I especially love texture in natural materials - the touch of nubby linen or the warm scratchiness of wool felt. Touch and texture, for me, evoke so many emotions and memories. And who doesn't like to celebrate beautiful memories? So much of what I do here is textural.

Text
It's my second favourite word. I love puns and innuendo and risqué double entendre. I crack up at my own jokes, and love playing with words. You'll see lots of punniness around here, that's for sure.
