THE BEST OF THE BEST - ETSY DESIGN AWARDS FINALISTS
Have you heard about #TheEtsies? The first-ever Etsy Design Awards are being given out in September, and they will celebrate the very best creative makers from all around the world. There are a total of 160 finalists in 5 different categories (Inventive Decor, Signature Style, Festive Celebrations, Earth-Friendly, and Creative Collaborations) in the running for the grand prize of $15,000!
I’m absolutely blown away by all the insane talent of the finalists, and I do NOT envy the official judges! I’m so glad I don’t have the pressure of choosing the actual winners, but I have narrowed it down to 8 of my personal faves below!
Terrazzo is having a MOMENT right now, so it’s no surprise that these terrazzo dinner plates from Tramake are part of #TheEtsies. Bonus: they’re shatterproof, dishwasher safe, AND biodegradable!
I am absolutely OBSESSED with this massive rainbow weave from NovaMercury. It’s a splurge for sure, but it’s a true example of artistry and what handmade culture is all about.
This gorgeous leather tote from alexbender has one of the most perfect color palettes I’ve ever seen. Each colored stripe is a separate piece of leather, and the bag is just the right size to fit a tablet or small laptop.
I’m a huge fan of mid-century modern design and this gorgeous oak wood stand from MoWdwrk is the perfect piece to show off your vintage vinyl collection.
I would love nothing more than to snuggle up in this luscious block printed quilt from KaribyKriti with a hot cup of tea and a good book.. how about you?
These slides by EatingTheGoober are basically the only summer shoes you’ll ever need. You purchase the base, which is made of all recycled and sustainable materials, and then choose the design(s) you love to snap on top.. good for the environment, good for your wallet.. everyone wins!
Speaking of sustainability, if you’re looking for a sweet way to help out the pollinators in your yard, this adorable Bee Hotel from Wuddl is just about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! I’m such a sucker for functional things made pretty! Bonus: it comes in lots of colors!
Last, but certainly not least, these custom face magnets from KitAtlas are beyond adorable and could be used to celebrate birthdays, bachelorette parties, weddings, anniversaries, and so much more! Oh, and you can get your furry friends done, too!
