We are a collective of handmade shops from around the world. Most of our members are studio artists and make their own products, but we also support ethical vintage and craft communities, especially if they have a fair trade focus. Each applicant is evaluated based on the products they would bring into the mix, their professionalism and their aesthetic. Our main focuses are on home decor products and eco fashion. We also accept handmade supplies. Artizan Made’s mission is to promote and support its membership. Each shop member has a profile on the site and is promoted through our blog and social media sites, with Facebook as our primary place. We have a private group on Facebook which has been an excellent way to share knowledge, tips and news. We will eventually have a forum on the site as well. Learn more about our story on the About page.
In Spring of 2016, our marketplace was launched as way to showcase our member products in a searchable manner. Each member gets one product listed in the market for free. There is an additional fee to participate fully as a market shop. Market shop listings can link to a product elsewhere (for example on Etsy or on the member’s own site), display a made to order item, or use our cart for direct sales. At this time, downloads and commercial prints are not allowed. We want everything on the market to show actual handmade products. The market furthers our goal in promoting our members. The internet has become an extremely competitive space making it difficult to penetrate and attract the right customers. Having a group with a high quality aesthetic invites shoppers who share these interests and helps them find products they want to support. Whether customers shop on our site or hop on over to our members sites, our goal of support is fulfilled with each purchase made.
