Our Story

We believe that every style has a story.

To tell those stories in the best way, we developed handmade & co. to be the shopping destination that:


Showcases the character of beautiful handmade products from all over the world


Celebrates the independent makers who create these unique objects

Wondering what the “co.” part of our name stands for?

In order to accomplish 1 & 2, we resolve to:

  • Be conscientious by offering fair pricing, and carbon neutral shipping
  • Nurture collaboration between ourselves and the makers we support
  • Foster a global community of makers
  • Become a place where shoppers can connect with the kind of anti-ordinary products they love, and the people who make them
  • And, of course, be a cool place to shop

We’ve got years of experience in supporting independent artisans

Even though is a new site, our origins go back to 2001, when Overstock Founder Patrick Byrne started Worldstock as an open marketplace for global makers. While Worldstock has been a hit, success for us comes with a desire to do even better. That’s why offers a curated selection, so that when you shop, you can quickly find just what you want. And of course, makers are front and center where they belong. When you buy something from handmade & co., you know exactly where it came from, who made it, and the story behind it.
