My name is Madelein, the creative mind behind Handgemaak. I’m a wife and mother and my family means the absolute world to me! Especially the precious moments we share together. The photos we take are precious reminders of the love we share as a family and that is why I vowed to never hide a single photo away in a drawer or in a folder on my computer. I need to see them everyday! In doing so, I started experimenting with different mediums on which photos can be printed, such as wood. It turns out I wasn’t the only one who loved this idea. A friend visited my house one day and couldn’t stop staring at the magical creations on my wall, one favor tuned into another which eventually led to my very own business, Handgemaak.
EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY
Give your memories a special place on your wall, mounted onto quality wood – you take a photograph, I’ll make it!
Handgemaak is based in Polokwane but I courier all over South Africa. Keep in mind that production can take up to 15 working days.
The blocks are covered with a see through layer of protective sealant, the layer protects the art work from moisture, damage and dust. The protective layer also protects against exposure to Ultra Violet Light and they are ready to hang.
Because all products are locally handmade by my, you can rest assure that your art is a unique as you! This is why every photoblock will always have its unique differences and irregularities, this makes them one-of-a-kind!
Dust your photo blocks with a soft dry cloth. However, keep in mind that the surface can be scratched when in touch with a sharp object.
Please take care!
