UK Handmade is a design-led online magazine committed to showcasing and promoting the best creative talent the UK has to offer. The term ‘handmade’ is an indicator of quality, care and professionalism that is second to none and something that UK Handmade wishes to encourage and celebrate. ... reach to the general public and demonstrate that ‘handmade’ was no longer a relic of dusty church halls but a vibrant and viable alternative to the mass produced and imported goods that saturated the high street.

‘for a life less ordinary’ We’re a marketplace...which means that everything on our site is sold and sent directly by the creative small business that made, sourced or selected it. We’re passionate about handpicking the best creative small businesses to sell on our marketplace, making it simple for you to find inspired, personalised, stylish or unique things.

We don’t sell one particular style. We choose sellers who offer great design and the best quality We are bringing back the skills products, many of which can be of our grandparents, growing customised to suit you.

Whether you’re looking for a present for your mum, saying thank you to someone or need gifts for everyone in your business, find products that show how well you know the people you’re buying for.

Companies supporting the art of handmade and contemporary craft designer-makers. Research into their values.

We are anthropologists of commerce. We’re curious about people and what they make, exchange and consume. By looking around at the stuff that matters to our lives, we believe we can understand more about what moves us as human beings. Around the world, there’s a new clamoring to know the story behind what we buy — who made it, how, what route did it travel to our door? We’re here to tell these global stories, to introduce you to makers and collectors and the history of their goods. William Morris famously instructed that you should “have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.” Like you, we’re bored by the artificiality and ugliness of most products out there. We endeavor to inspire you with the imaginative, the durable, the forward-thinking, the lovely, the comforting, the provocative. ...we report on issues that matter to Etsy members — like supporting independent businesses and artists, eating well, living sustainably. Together we’re going to define what it means to live the handmade life, and how goods can relate to the common good.

Etsy is a beautiful experiment in restoring community and culture to our commerce. We are witnesses, Support British creative talent diving deep into the waters of this marketplace and returning with tales By shopping with us you’re doing about what’s emerging.

The exhibition was a cabinet of curiosities showing works by both amateurs and leading makers from around the world to present a snapshot of making in our time.
