Itshandicraft.com is a meeting place for buyers (individual / retail shops/ wholesale buyers etc.) and sellers (artisans) to trade hand crafted articles around the whole world. It is a platform intended to change the way artisans sell their products globally with the help of technology that dissolves the distance between the artisans and the buyers. On the other hand, the retail shops can also buy at wholesale prices directly from the artisans. You can find here almost anything related to handmade products and we do have an incredible collection to appease your imagination.

A. Traditional Business Model: The Itshandicraft Business Model can be further sub-divided into two distinct Business Models
B.1. Itshandicraft Retail Model: In the Itshandicraft Retail Model, the retail buyer gets immensely benefited as there is no middleman between him and the seller (artisan). As a result of this, he is able to purchase an item directly from the artisan for a fair price.
For example, if an artisan (in India/ Turkey) creates an item and lists the handicraft on Itshandicraft for $10, the retail buyer (in UK/ FR/ DE) would be able to purchase it for $10 plus some nominal delivery charges that would be way below the price tag if he would have bought it from a local shop.
B.2. Itshandicraft Wholesale Model: In the Itshandicraft Wholesale Model, the Wholesale Buyer gets immensely benefited as he can load up on his inventory without paying exorbitant rates to the local distributor.
For example, if an artisan (in India/ Turkey) creates a handicraft and lists the item on Itshandicraft for a retail price of $10, he may set variable discounted wholesale rates of $8/ 100+ units, $7/200+ units and $6/ 500+ units. On the other hand, the Wholesale Buyer (in UK/ FR/ DE) would be able to purchase the lot at these prices, thereby making huge savings while purchasing.
Furthermore, Itshandicraft also offers a feature known as Made to Order through which if the seller (artisan) is short on stock of the item, he can still take an order and agree on a deferred delivery date of the whole order when it is finished.

Amit Gupta is a London based entrepreneur. Academically, he is a B.Tech in Computer Science and an MBA in E-Commerce. He started his professional career as a Business Analyst and later on shifted his focus towards Business Consultancy and providing turnkey solutions as an E-Commerce Strategist. He commenced his business career with a software company based out of London, generated business by primarily analyzing the gaps in the business process and provided solutions to those issues through IT. He carved a niche for himself in this segment through relentless efforts. Itshandicraft is the brainchild of Amit Gupta’s 15 years of hands on experience as an e-commerce strategist and addresses the gaps in the handicraft marketplace.
His collaboration with Mr. Yildiz is an awesome opportunity for buyers as well as sellers because this tie up of two remarkably gifted individuals is sure to dish up nothing but the best things possible.

During his formative years, Kazim came in contact with some of the finest restorers of Istanbul which left an indelible mark on him and helped chisel out the artistic best in him. Then he decided to come and settle in London and continue his passion for handcrafted rugs, kilims and carpets. His knowhow, expertise and dedicated staff have taken his business to remarkable heights. Trust, quality, variety and efficiency are the watchwords of his famous Richmond; London based retail and wholesale business (Rug Store).
