HOW PINKNOUNOU GET STARTED?
It was born from my desire to make things with my hands in a more creative way - I think I inherit from my father, he used to do beautiful things in wood (many years ago I also did some things in wood, inspired by is work and also by the beautiful african woods he had); also my mother always made things with fabrics, although for many years I had an “aversion” to the sewing machine ;) So I started sewing first only by hand and then I made more, and more, experimented a lot and I realised I was totally in love by this kind of work. My passion for kids design and children's illustration books led me to create an enchanted world filled with little dolls, softies, sets about classic tales, bibs with Little Red Ridinh Hood story...
DO YOU ACCEPT CUSTOM ORDERS? SPECIAL OCCASION GIFTS?

Want to offer a special occasion handmade gift? Some products can be made in quantity (still with a low minimum order quantity) for you to use in your kids birthday party or in a baby shower or as wedding favors or even as corporate gifts.
CAN I FIND YOUR PRODUCTS LOCALLY?
Yes. Please visit the Retailers page where all shops are listed.
DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY? HOW IS SHIPPING DONE?
Yes – with ♥ and a smile ;)
Items are always shipped in Registered Mail (it's a priority mail) - with Tracking Number. This means that you receive the package directly from the postman at your given address and a signature is requested (it doesn't have to be yours but from anyone that accepts the package).
You can follow the progress of your order by simply entering the tracking number on the site of the shipping service being used, in this case CTT - Correios de Portugal.
(Your order is shipped from Portugal - Europe).
Orders are dispatch after confirmation of payment (within 3 to 5 days - usually less - except custom orders) and the estimate date also dependes on stock availability* - I'll try to be as fast as possible :) and I'll shortly inform you if any delay occurs.
Shipping to European countries takes about 5 (business) days and to the Rest of the World about 7 to 15 (business) days ** (please understand that some delays might happen - sometimes related with the Customs in your country - that are out of my reach, but if that is the case contact me and I'll try to assist you).
The exact shipping cost is calculated upon checkout before you submit payment and depends on the weight of your parcel.
You will receive an email once your order is placed (confirming your address) and another with the tracking number when is shipped.
If you’d like to send your order to an address other than your own it’s no problem, when you place your order, just let me know your delivery instructions. I'll be happy to include a gift card with a short message that you would like written in it.
* Some out of stock products (that have not been discontinued) can take about 3 to 7 weeks being printed & made.
** In Christmas or other busy seasons shipping can take more time please see the shipping deadlines info at the home page. These are estimative deadlines we don't guarantee any exact or specific date.
