Handmade fashion, jewellery and homewares by top British craftsmen and women.

Contemporary craft website madebyhandonline.com sells and promotes the work of top British designer-makers. Set up by two friends, Sarah James and Katie Honnor (who have 20 years in-depth knowledge of the craft sector between them), this engaging website will help you find the best in handmade homewares, fashion and jewellery from craftsmen and women across the country.

A HOTBED OF TALENT

Beautifully styled and curated, madebyhandonline makes great use of photography and colour. Everything on the site has been carefully selected by Sarah and Katie: if you're looking for a handmade gift or something for your home and you like things that have been made with skill, time and imagination, then you will love the products available here. Pretty appliqué cushions, vibrant blown glass, wire sculptures, hand printed cards and hand-painted silk tops set the tone for this showcase of talent and whimsical creativity.

MEET THE MAKERS

All manner of craftmanship is represented on the site, including stylish millinery by Sally-Ann Provan, pretty (and quirky) ceramics by Hanne Rysgaard and the dazzling array of shapes and colours that is Roger Morris’ jewellery. Many of the pieces on madebyhandonline have fascinating and charming stories behind them and the makers themselves are very prominent on the site. To read more about them, head to the section entitled ‘Our Makers’, where you can read about their inspirations and passions, giving real meaning to their work.

CRAFT NEWS & RESOURCES

Katie and Sarah’s love of crafts extends beyond the retail side of things and they have worked hard to create an online community of makers and resources for the craft industry; there is a jobs board, a list of craft courses and workshops, as well as a ‘What’s On’ section where you can keep up to date with quality craft events across the country. The madebyhandonline Blog is well worth a visit too, as it features guest bloggers, information about their designer makers latest projects, special offers and lots more craft news besides. Madebyhandonline also sponsors some of the country's major national craft events; supporting British craft beyond the website.
