Hello and welcome to The Maker Place. Our aim is to make it as easy and enjoyable as possible for you to discover the very best style-led homeware and unique gifts available from UK designer-makers. We’re a marketplace, but not as you know it! We handpick all of the items we sell and focus on both style and substance; beautiful pieces that are crafted with care. We hope you enjoy browsing our range of beautifully made, stylish homeware, furniture, art prints and gifts.
WE SUPPORT SUSTAINABLE CRAFTSMANSHIP + DESIGN
We believe that the pieces we bring into our homes and live with every day, should be functional and beautiful and that by paying attention to the way they are made, make us feel good about buying them too. When design and craftsmanship go hand in hand and you know the story of who made something, each time you use that item, you remember that connection. We work closely with all of our makers to ensure that the materials they use and methods of production are thoughtful and sustainable, with 99% of the pieces we select made entirely within the UK on an individual or small scale.
MAKING BUYING DIRECT EASY & RELIABLE
We’re committed to making sure that you can really enjoy shopping for hard-to-find, independent design, safe in the knowledge that we offer a hassle-free, FREE, no quibble 30 day returns policy, plus a secure checkout managed by global payment gateway STRIPE with the option to pay via debit or credit card .

SHARING OUR PASSION FOR STYLE, DESIGN + CRAFTSMANSHIP
The Maker Place is not just about finding great products; we want to bring you the latest design news and inspiration, the inside-track on new makers and what inspires their work.
AS SEEN IN -
We launched The Maker Place in April 2016 with a vision to create a new type of marketplace; a makerplace. I’ve always liked the idea of marketplaces where small designers can sell and connect directly with customers, and receive a larger share than when selling through traditional retailers, but I struggled to find a marketplace that sold what I was looking for; beautifully crafted, UK-made pieces, where it was easy to find high-quality stylish pieces without spending too long searching through thousands of products.
From initial idea to what you see today, launching the site has been a whirlwind of a journey. With so much support and such a lovely reaction to the site, we’re very excited for the future of The Maker Place, so thank you very much for taking the time to read our story and for your interest in us and our makers! Without the support of everyone who takes an interest and our lovely customers, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do and help new makers find a platform to showcase their amazing work.
I hope you enjoy browsing some of the beautifully made pieces we’re lucky enough to be able to share with you. We’d love to hear from you and stay in touch via social media, so please do Contact Us if you have a query or would just like to say hi and you can find us on social media via the links below!
With best wishes,
