Handicraft products have a unique attraction for us Indians due to their intricate artwork, attention to minute details, durable quality, and ties to the culture. Handicraft items are an enduring choice when it comes to decorating your office/home or even gifting to your loved ones.

Many handmade and handicraft items from all around the world speak of the culture, tradition, and history of a place. For example, India is famous for the metals and mud-based handicraft, for which the detailing varies from state to state. Here are some tips to guide you in selecting the best handcrafts online and offline.

What is the difference between handmade and handcrafted?

“Handmade” means making something using your hands, while “handcrafted” means designing and adding more intricate details to the product/item, which are made by hand. Handcrafted may allude to a specialised skill or craft, which makes the product more unique. 

Let’s take the example of pottery. Here, when you make a pot from clay, it’s called a handmade object. When you add additional detailing like painting and decorating with beads, it’s called a handcrafted pot.

How to select the right handicraft?

There are no set rules to select an excellent handicraft. Art is subjective, and so are one’s preferences in interior decor. However, you can consider a few factors while purchasing home utilities, rugs, or other handcrafted products.

  1.     Quality of the Product

There are many options for purchasing handicrafts but ensuring quality is a must for product longevity. Ask yourself these questions while researching a handicraft purchase:
