Earlier today, retail giant Amazon announced the launch of “Handmade at Amazon“, a central marketplace where artisans from all over the world can make their wares available to customers from all over the world for online purchase. Each hand-crafted item has a product page that supplies information about the artist, where the artist is located and links to other items the artist is selling.
With Handmade at Amazon, customers can discover artisans from around the world, and shop local from artisans based in their community with the familiar Amazon experience they know and trust. Handmade at Amazon was designed to provide customers and artisans a tailored store specifically for handcrafted items. All products available on Handmade at Amazon are factory-free and must be made by hand. Handmade at Amazon features a variety of product categories including Jewelry, Home Décor, Artwork, Stationery and Party Supplies, Kitchen and Dining, and Furniture.
