Artizan: Made by Hand is a collective of shops that sell handmade products.
Artizan Made is associated with but separate from TAFA: The Textile and Fiber Art List. Our TAFA member textile and fiber art shops were the first members of the Artizan collective, but then we broadened our base by accepting non-member shops with other handmade products that we love and want to support.
Our main focus on this site is on home decor and eco-fashion.
Both TAFA and Artizan Made embrace the belief that our historical roots and international connections inform and support each other, so as you explore our shops, you will find handmade products made by studio artists around the world, along with ethical vintage offerings, fair trade groups and small-scale importers. We live in an exciting time where the internet, ease of travel and access to new markets offer previously isolated makers and keepers of tradition to form partnerships, exchange ideas and to flourish and grow in often unexpected ways. You can be a part of that by spreading our efforts around and helping us tell these important stories.
The Handmade Revolution is a partnership where buyers, makers and providers embrace a common cause: creating the conditions necessary where we can compete fairly and effectively in an environment that often encourages bad practices. Choosing to buy handmade has deep repercussions that influence our environment, fair wages, freedom of choice through the ownership and production of meaningful products.
We believe that forming like-minded groups like Artizan Made helps provide some relief to the demands of owning an online business. Most of our shop owners face endless tasks involving product development, photography, listing the products, dealing with customer service, marketing and shipping. Artizan Made can help by providing peer support and joint marketing. We have a private group on Facebook where we share tips and information and the site invests in paid promotions on Facebook and elsewhere. But, the main value is in bringing together a group that offers high quality products and service. Most of our shops are on Etsy, although we are increasing our support to stand-alone shops. We are small, but focused, and our motto includes a partnership between sellers and buyers: “Together we can do great things!”
Our shops all contribute a small amount to help cover staff time and marketing costs. Currently, the membership fee is $125 for the set-up and a $12.50/month automatic payment through PayPal. Learn more on our Join Page.
We thank you for your support!

My needle felted Bull Terrier is 7" tall x 4" wide x 4" deep, he has a polymer clay nose and glass eyes; his legs are bendable. These sculptures are collectible items, they are one of a kind pieces that are wonderful for dog lovers or as a memento of a beloved pet. You can request a made to order sculpture of your own pet, e-mail me for details: email@example.com. You can read more about Bully breed dogs on my blog at:http.www.lauraleeburch I love the medium of wool for needle felted sculpture; you can achieve very fine details by needle felting and you can mix the wool with embroidery, sewing, beading etc. which makes it very visually interesting. Each animal is handmade; each dog takes 10-15 hours minimally to create; the dogs are needle felted from wool, this dog has glass eyes, a leather collar. I adore animals and I hope to educate and bring attention to particular animal causes (animal rescue and fundraising). *Needle felting is meshing raw wool together with a specially barbed needle by repeatedly stabbing the wool with the needle. The wool binds together to create very strong forms. These sculptures are not toys. *To protect and keep your needle felted sculpture looking its best I recommend placing the sculpture under a glass or plexiglass covering. A covering will protect the wool from dust and prevent admirers from touching the sculpture which will eventually make the wool become slightly fuzzy.$185.00 Shop: Laura Lee Burch
