Hanmade is a brand of books, toys and stationary that hope to personalise the objects that are close to everyone’s heart. Made with a great deal of thought and inclusion, these products help to get the best out of different materials that are used and the person who uses them.
Touch and Feel:
These are handmade books which have a ‘touch and feel’ aspect to it. We have put together different materials like dried leaves, threads, paper to enable children to ‘feel’ the book while reading. Each book comes with a note to the parent / adult on ideas and the kind of activities that could be done along with the book.
Titles: Out in the Garden by Ramya and Preetha
