WELCOME TO ARTERNO
Arterno’s founder, Valerie Iliadis has always been passionate about the power of creating. She believed that art had the potential to transform the environment around us, and the power to positively change the way in which we think.
Inspired by the Greek principle- life is short, but art is forever, Valerie sought to make the world a more creative place to be, one handmade piece at a time. With this dream, Arterno was established.
Arterno is an online destination for people to explore handcrafted products that allow them the freedom to put together their own pieces. We believe that everyone has a sense of imagination and imagination is all you need to put together the DIY pieces we offer in our craft kits. Arterno is a small start up with a big vision: to make the world a more creative and inspiring place to be.
To accomplish this, we gathered as much information as we possibly could on the topic of creativity, and came to one simple conclusion: it’s good for you. Creativity enhances your capacity to make those difficult decisions, your ability to come up with some pretty impressive solutions to problems and your general wellbeing and happiness.
With never-ending To-Do lists, constant access to technology and the prevalence of screens, Arterno understands that introducing crafts and DIY projects is not always simple. With this in mind, we focus strongly on ergonomic designs that keep your lifestyle in mind. We design and offer products that contain everything you need to make your own personalised craft, without any trips to the craft store.
Our crafts kits are simple to assemble, and they give you the potential to customise your creations according to your personal tastes and desires. We aspire to awaken the creative potential that everybody has. You only need some inspiration and a little bit of time to create something beautiful.
We encourage a sense of sharing and creating together. Any of our products can be made to order as gifts with personalised photos, names, phrases, and colours to suit the tastes of your nearest and dearest. We create products for the dreamers, the makers, the creators and the budding artists; it is our priority to make sure that you receive a product that is unique to you.
We are passionate about making the world a better place to be through handmade crafts and DIY pieces that enhance your surroundings. So it makes sense that we want to do as much as we can to leave the environment unharmed. We use sustainable resources and natural materials. We are eco-conscious, and dedicated to using materials that are kind on the environment, yet durable.
We love dreaming up and designing products that awaken the creative potential in everyone. We are constanlly exploring new ways to create crafts that will engage crafters of all ages and skill levels. We are dedicated to our dream of changing the environement around us for the better, and introducing positivity into peoples’ lives, and this dedication comes through in each of the products we create. Putting it all and giving it that magical, creative touch is all up to you.
