About us

Madebyhandonline.com is dedicated to promoting high quality British Contemporary Craft. We're a small team behind the scenes, based in Devon, working within the Craft industry with and for our makers. Our website brings together a whole community of selected makers from around the UK and we use our site to celebrate their work and sell directly to the public - online. 

Founded at the end of 2010, our site and brand was designed to express a deep respect for the making community and to truly represent the value of high quality handmade products. We're not a marketplace - we aim to offer something different, so we're more of a curated contemporary craft shop and pr tool for makers. This is now the second version of our site. We launched this shiny version at the end of the summer 2016.

We love to work with other organisations and national events to help champion British Contemporary Craft and we sponsor some of the UK's leading Craft and Design events, including The Contemporary Craft FestivalMADE London, MADE BrightonMade By Hand WalesMade By Hand Cheltenham and The Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair. We are also very happy to be a Kaleider Resident.

Madebyhandonline.com aims to make it easy to buy what you really want. Our collection represents a highly selective mix of the finest makers from UK and Ireland, with an enviable group of jewellers, ceramic artists, furniture makers, textile designers and fashion accessory makers as well as beautiful pieces made from glass, metal and wood. We’re so pleased to be working with so many fabulous makers of contemporary craft and hope you will join us in supporting and promoting their incredible skills.

The JUST A CARD campaign aims to encourage people to buy from Designer/Makers and Independent Galleries and Shops by reinforcing the message that all purchases, however small, even 'just a card' are so vital to the prosperity and survival of small businesses. Please do check out their website. Thank you to the tireless organisers of this campaign, and thanks to everyone who helps us and other small businesses to support makers.

Our passion for the industry has driven us to do more… madebyhandonline is more than just a shopping site. We do all we can to spread the word about inspirational events, exhibitions and employment opportunities, letting people know where they can see work, as well as find courses and workshops where they can learn how to acquire skills themselves.
