The beauty of handcrafted wares

The beauty of handcrafted wares

I have a thing for handcrafted homewares. There is something so satisfying about supporting a talented craftsperson or maker. The knowledge that you have supported a sole trader or small business (and most likely, someone’s personal dream), is quite gratifying in itself. Added to this is the joy of investing in a unique or one-off item with a special or interesting story to tell, maybe relating to the artisan or their community, the origin or source of the materials or the distinctive processes behind the creation of the piece.

Here are a few of my favourite makers and their Instagram handles. Enjoy discovering their super lovely wares and please do share your favourites with us.
