Buy Less, Buy Better, Buy Handmade

by Folksy

Join our national campaign for craft

We’re thrilled to share with you something we’ve been working on for months. We’ve partnered up with some of the most influential organisations and individuals in the craft sector to create a national campaign designed to support makers across the UK and encourage shoppers to BUY LESS, BUY BETTER, BUY HANDMADE.

Working with industry experts Crafts Council, Heritage Crafts, Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair, CRAFT Festival and Find A Maker, our collaborative Christmas campaign encourages people to make conscious shopping decisions, and choose to buy from local and handmade businesses like yours. We’re privileged to also have the support of craft advocates Jay Blades MBE, Keith Brymer Jones and Sue Pryke on this campaign.

Artist Nick Hand encapsulates our message beautifully with his letterpress poster, which is available to buy here https://folksy.com/shops/nickhandall proceeds from the sales will go directly to the artist.
