Affinity Made By Hand

We are a family run business based in Portumna, Galway, Ireland that we own and run independently. Affinity-Made By Hand is our website to complement our Portumna shop specialising in beautiful handmade artisan handicrafts, ornaments, homeware and natural bath and body products.

Our Wooden handicrafts are made by craftspeople some in Bali, some sourced from around the world, and delivered directly to your door from Portumna.
Our love of unique handmade handicrafts from around the world is one reason we have started up our Affinity made by hand shop: You simply cannot ignore the beauty of something that has been made by peoples hands and minds.

Vision Is The True Creative Rhythm

Our dream is to help to create a better world for artisans because a better world for Artisans is a better world for all of us. Our vision of the future is not one of the huge monolith factories producing pre-moulded products for all to cheaply consume and then to discard onto rubbish tips.

Instead, we see a bright future that celebrates artisans who take the time and love to create an item by hand. A future where time is honoured, where stories are told, where unique details are ingrained by hand. Love, respect and Affinity is our way.

Join us as we forge a new path for all together. Let’s create a better world!

Unique gifts for the one you love. We do all we can to respect the environment, we only want to work with ethically sourced materials. We try to minimise our footprint. We use recycled or easily biodegradable materials for packing to the best possible extent.

Happy Artisans equals Happy Customers with LOVE at the core that’s Affinity made by hand

One-of-a-kind gifts, homeware, ornaments and natural bath and body products hand made by the world’s most talented artisans.
