About "HK Handmade"
How did this platform born?
One day, one of our founders was day dreaming at his little seat, and wondering if there is any handicraft to learn or make a gift for a friend. Spending a day, he discovered there are many artisans in HK, and most of them are active on Facebook and Instagram from separated pages. At that moment, an idea came to his mind, “Why don't we make a platform for who like handicrafts in HK?”. Afterward, the Version 1 development has been started, which didn't provide any online shopping service or interactive functionalities.
For now what you are using, it is the Version 2. Our team hopes this Version could help more artisans by promoting their handicrafts,art sense , skills and attitude, in only ONE platform.
