Madebypaulinauk is a handmade item online shop specialising in bright and colourful terrazzo homeware and accessories. All run by Paulina herself, from her flat in Reading, UK.
She aims to create unique and modern home decor for young creative adults that love to add a splash of colour into their life.
With sustainability being a key part of the business Paulina always makes eco friendly choices in terms of materials, packaging and the making process.
The packaging is often recycled or made up of recyclable materials to minimise our impact on the environment.
Each item is made individually and entirely by hand. First the beautiful colours are mixed using Jesmonite and broken into little pieces to create the terrazzo chips. Then they are mixed into the base and cast in a variety of homeware moulds. Once set they are hand sanded to reveal the colourful chips and later sealed to protect against stains and water damage. The overall process is time consuming and highly rewarding. With the outcomes always being completely unique!
In our shop you will find items like coasters, trays, pots, candle holder and jewellery. New products are launched regularly, subscribe to our mailing list to receive updates on new launches, offers and discounts straight to your mailbox.

The Designer behind the Brand:
Paulina, (originally from Poland) moved to England in 2007 when she was only 11. She followed a creative path all the way through her studies and eventually graduated with a Printed Textiles degree in 2018.
Madebypaulinauk started during the summer of 2020 when Paulina was put on furlough. She found herself with a lot of spare time and decided to fill it experimenting with the material. Her work started getting noticed when she began posting short videos on Tiktok and Instagram.
She now works full time as a Print design assistant and runs Madebypaulinauk in the evenings and weekends, with the aim to expand and eventually take the business full time.
