I am Núria, the founder and owner of Chompa Handmade.

I started Chompa Handmade in 2012, soon after arriving in Newcastle from Barcelona, as a hobby while my son Giles was a baby.

This hobby has evolved organically over the years to the small business it is now.

Chompa Handmade is now an online store where I sell natural, sustainable, ethical, vegan strings, cords, ropes and craft accessories made in Spain that I pick and import personally.

All products in the shop are made with 100% natural fibres sourced in Europe, dyed in vibrant colours with non-toxic tints, spun with water and all certified with the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certification. 

I have a degree in graphic design, a career I loved for fifteen years and which I always had a desire to come back to.

Spending time exploring new trends in crafts and fashion is one of my passions. This includes regular visits to the local markets here in Newcastle and Australia, as well as in Barcelona whenever I have the chance.

If you would like to know more about my supplies, discuss importing a product you can't find on my website or even organise a workshop, why not get in touch? You can email me at by clicking here.
