How does CustomMade work?

CustomMade is an online marketplace connecting customers who want one-of-a-kind creations with professional and passionate makers of those goods. Born in 1996 with the vision to help people find the unique gifts, objects and goods they cannot find through traditional retail channels, CustomMade has grown from a community of 350 carpenters to thousands of makers of all trades since its acquisition in 2009.

Customers connect with professional makers by submitting a photo or description of what they're looking to have made. Interested makers reach out with ideas or send a proposal to create the project. Customers looking for inspiration can also browse maker profiles and contact makers directly.
