Have you heard of the Etsy Design Awards? They are Etsy’s first ever global award program! So cool, right? Also known as #TheEtsies, they honour creatives from around the world and celebrate the talented people behind the winning products, because YES, there are real people behind all the products on Etsy. No machines, people!
I just learnt about #TheEtsies recently, but maybe next year I’ll apply! Thousands of entries are received from around the world, intact there were 160 finalists, all hoping to win the grand prize of $15,000 USD or a prize in one of the five categories which include: Inventive Decor, Signature Style, Festive Celebrations, Earth-Friendly and Creative Collaborations. The winners will be announced September 2019.
I’ve had so much fun checking out many of the finalists and I wanted to share with you some of my favourites!
How gorgeous is this Lark Jumpsuit? Handmade with linen and it’s like you are getting two jumpsuits for the price of one because it’s reversible! You can wear the tie part at the back too. You can find this one in the Signature Style category.
Rainbow and Butterfly Coat
How adorable is this handmade coat? This one really stood out for me, its so cute! Check out the other beautiful photos HERE. This one is also a finalist in the Signature Style category.
Bridal Ballet Flats
These Bridal Ballet Flats are gorgeous! I’m not one for heels so these really stood out for me. Maybe I need to get married again? Haha, kidding! You’ll find these ones in the Festive Celebrations category.
The Ethical Magic Sliders
As soon as I saw these, I had to share them! I mean, they are super cool, made with recycled materials like car tires, motorbike inner tubes, cork, rubber and such, but even more important, if you’ve been following my Instagram, you may have seen my poll on the whole socks and sandals trend. My husband and I were having a disagreement regarding what is okay when it comes to socks and sandals. I said its okay to wear socks with sandals when you have pants on, but he disagreed! Seriously though, this trend is back and its NOT just with pants. All the cool kids are wearing socks and sandals with shorts! However I did terribly lose the poll….75% agreed with my husband. But these sandals, now wouldn’t they look wicked with socks? I think YES!
