The passion to create something of our own, something that we could share with others, something that we loved has always been there. Angela Martins and Nelson Henriques founded Terracotta Senses with the hopes of sharing this passion of selling natural, eco-friendly and handmade products with others.

It all started when Angela began showcasing some bits and bobs of scented candles, small Buddha statues and other ornaments at her beauty salon to see if it sparked some interest, and luckily, it did. These small bits and bobs quickly turned into full collections of products that were being displayed at markets around Hertfordshire and, after a few successful months, Terracotta Senses opened their doors to the public at 41 Elizabeth Road, Bishop’s Stortford. Fast forward to November 2021 and we moved to a new store at 84 South St, Bishop’s Stortford CM23 3BG, where it will allows us to continue grow and continue to provide the best products you have been accustomed to.

The name Terracotta Senses slowly popped into our minds as we wrote down random letters in a notebook at a dinner party with friends, it couldn’t have been more spontaneous. It was as if a lightbulb appeared on top of our heads after writing the first couple of letters – Terracotta! It’s connected to everything we love and to the products we showcase, it simply made sense.

Terracotta Senses was made with passion from us to you. We hope that you will fall in love with our products online and in-store. If you are ever near our shop, feel free to pop by to see new products we have available, smell our fragrances or simply for a quick chat. And, if you have a question or need some information about a product, don’t hesitate to contact us, we are always happy to help!
