Handmade crafts, also known as handicraft, is a hobby or profession that requires the skills to create something by hand. Often these skills are mastered over years or even decades among dedicated individuals with a passion in their area of expertise. Examples of this craft work include crocheting, embroidery, knitting, tapestry, wood making, jewelry making, pottery and glass blowing.

In the traditional sense, craft making depicted items of cultural or religious significance. Without television or modern media, cultures relied on drawn photos or trinkets as forms of expression. These items, if made by machines, are not considered handicrafts anymore in its strictest sense. Handicrafts are decorative pieces that are creatively made by hand using simple tools in a small shop, garage, or even the kitchen table.

Producing some type of artisan craft can be a fulfilling business while providing the opportunity to showcase your creativity. If you’re thinking about opening your own Etsy shop or selling at a farmers market, you need to come up with a distinct brand name. Here are some the best craft business name ideas that still aren’t taken yet to help kick off your business name brainstorming process. Let’s begin.

Top Selling Crafts Online

craft soda bottles

Craft soda bottle caps made into a form of art.

The global pandemic has changed how consumers shop for handmade goods. In the past, most commerce was conducted at farmers or flea markets. Today, building a small online store or selling on Etsy or learning to sell on social media has become a requirement for these small businesses.  Based on my research, these are some of the best selling crafts online right now.

Gift baskets. This handicraft has been a tradition especially during the holiday season and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down anytime. Though the contents of the basket have improved over the years, containing more high-end items, plus you don’t have to line up in the market for traditional items.

Natural Cosmetics. Most people want to look good though traditional beauty products carry chemicals that scare most of its users. Using your creativity to whip up some beauty products made from natural ingredients would be a sure-fire hit among natural cosmetics enthusiasts.

Blankets or quilts. A custom-made quilt is a lost art. Quilts can provide comfort and become a family heirloom making them in demand products during these difficult times.

Digital Prints. Using your Photoshop and graphic design skills can make any wedding, birthday, or family photo something that you want to display inside your home. You can take these photo editing skills and put them to use remotely for customers.

Jewelry. Hand-made jewelry has been a longtime favorite in this industry. While the trends and styles change frequently in this industry, demand for polished beads, gemstones, and agate slices remains strong over the years. If you’re able to take high-quality photos of your pieces, driving demand for these items online can work well.

Sweets. Who doesn’t love sweets? Probably health-conscious individuals, though a majority of us can’t resist these yummy delectables. Cakes, chocolates, and cookies have commonly been in demand, especially those made with a personal touch. This takes us away from our saturation from commonly mass-produced sweets available in the market.

As a general rule of thumb, try to pick a product that is light in weight to produce. This makes shipping the product easier and more affordable for consumers. If you’re planning to get into wood working and making one-of-a-kind kitchen tables, you’ll want to target customers nearby where you can deliver the product yourself. Shipping large items can add hundreds of dollars in cost to your customers and make generating sales more complex.
