About Us

We search for the best handmade items
and curate them together for your enjoyment.

We know the feeling – there are lots of lovely things to buy for your home, for yourself, as a gift, but sometimes it all just starts to look a bit too… samey? The flipside of goods being readily available all over the world is that we all seem to end up having more or less the same stuff. And even though there are lots of great products out there with a bit more personality they can be really hard to find. Trawling the internet for a special handmade item takes time, and automated recommendations just don’t always quite hit the mark.

These are just some of the reasons why we have started Appurt. So here at Appurt you will find items that have been lovingly created by makers for sale on Etsy and Amazon Handmade, and then carefully curated together by our Appurt editors, so that you can look through a selection of goods that deserve to have a good home.

It’s important that you know that Appurt isn’t a shop – it’s a collection of our favourite hidden gems from all over Etsy and Amazon Handmade brought together in one place for you to enjoy. This means that when you find an item, you simply click through to Etsy or Amazon and buy the item directly from the person who made it.

And what does ‘Appurt’ mean?

Our name Appurt comes from the word appurtenance. Appurtenance (əˈpəːt(ɪ)nəns, noun) means an accessory or other item associated with a particular activity or style of living.
