Stewards of handmade
Our dream is to create a community that stands up for handmade. Everyone is welcome - buyers, sellers, and anyone who cares about handmade. Why? The world is changing in the blink of an eye. Technology and innovation deliver new possibilities every single day. But culture, heritage and time-honored crafts are often caught in the crosshairs. If we don't act, many crafts run the risk of disappearing entirely.
We promise to do everything within our power to protect our vibrant cultural heritage by bringing together incredible creators and dedicated customers. Our job is to create a global marketplace for the highest-quality handmade items.
We are committed to ethically-crafted, environmentally-conscious, people-first practices. And we strive for authenticity and transparency as we work to ensure that handmade crafts live to see another day.
Living the movement.
Handmade is our passion. It is not simply a buzz word or a passing trend. To live by the principles of handmade is to stand up for the values of cultural preservation, time-honored crafts, ethical practices, and the people who dedicate their time and effort to creating unique, meaningful works of art. Our intention is to always represent these values in the most authentic way possible.
Our platform was built with sellers in mind. Every decision we make begins with the question: “is this good for artisans?” While we recognize that every seller has unique needs, our goal is always to listen, learn, and embrace practices that increasingly support our seller community. At Handmade.com, artisans have a seat at the table and can always apply to participate in our Handmade Corps or be elected by the seller community to the Village Council.
None of this would be possible without our incredible buyers. Every purchase helps to ensure that handmade crafts persevere. Our goal is to showcase a curated collection of the world’s best artisans to delight, surprise, and introduce you to beautiful creations that add meaning and joy to your life.
As our marketplace continues to grow, we rely on our vibrant buyer community to play an integral role in creating the best possible experience for everyone who loves and supports handmade crafts.We will seek your feedback, unique insights, and firsthand experiencesto ensure that this marketplace lives up to the highest standards.
