    Thank you for a great service.
    You communicated before order and payment was concluded; and I was informed of the process of my order at all times. My table is a little smaller than I expected – selected the wrong size but I am satisfied with the quality as it’s natural and will show some imperfections. I look forward to receiving the balance of my order.

    Thank you for the awesome service.

  23. Caryn

  30. Arnie Angles

    I have been in retail for over 45 years, I have been highly critical of the levels of service in the sector over the last few years, telephones that ring for ever and not answered, lack of feedback on issues and a general uncaring, unprofessional service.
    how DELIGHTFULL it was to deal with Daniela and Handmade in Malawi, the baskets arrived today sooner than promised! ( good practice under promise and overdeliver!) We are super happy with the product and look forward to future dealing with you all. Daniela you are a star!
