UK Handmade is a design-led online magazine committed to showcasing and promoting the best creative talent the UK has to offer. The term 'handmade' is an indicator of quality, care and professionalism that is second to none and something that UK Handmade wishes to encourage and celebrate.

Buy Handmade Campaign

UK Handmade is running a campaign to get people buying Handmade and supporting independent designers and makers throughout the UK. Sign our pledge and join the cause!

Why Buy Handmade?

Buying from small independent businesses and individual makers has never been so important particularly given the current economic climate. A recession can often be a perfect time to start a small business and the current cultural shift towards self-sufficiency means that a huge number of people are setting up on their own. Our own forum has nearly 5000 members with more joining daily!

Not only that but buying handmade has advantages and benefits that you won't get buying from the larger stores on the high street.
Many designer / makers will happily produce items that are made to order and bespoke so you can get something uniquely personal at surprisingly affordable prices because many designers don't have the same overheads as shops.
Buying locally reduces your carbon footprint because products haven't been shipped from the other side of the world.
Buying locally also means the money you spend stays in your area and boosts the local economy.
Independent makers care about the things they make so building a relationship with local designer / makers means you are guaranteed outstanding customer service and exceptional quality.
