Hearts in Hands

Hearts in Hands offers do-it-yourself sets that enable us to create a 3-D handprint – a so-called “bondee” – of ourselves or of a loved one in just a few minutes. The silkily grainy texture of the “bondee” provides a unique sensory experience, a soft handprint that we can hold onto, take away, and carry with us everywhere. The objects help us to overcome the separation when we are in a long-distance relationship and also have therapeutic uses – as exemplified by a family affected by a separation or in the field of palliative medicine – but are also popular as presents for happy events such as weddings or Mother’s Day. In short: wherever people are brought together by love.
