How does Artisna work?
Remember, we are an online marketplace and a community of artisans from the world over. Everything you see or buy on Artisna is owned, retrieved, created and/or manufactured by the creator or artisan or curator and not us. Artisna simply brings these articles and designs directly from the small creative businesses and puts them together under one roof. We make it easier for you to window shop and shop for the best handmade goods out there.
You can pay for the merchandise that you order all at once regardless of whether they are from one or more artisans. Our one easy checkout page tells you everything about your order in the form of a summary. Each artisan confirms the buyer about the order acceptance, dispatch details and transit info through regular and prompt emails.
How do I find things of my liking on the site?
Searching for what you want on Artisna is very easy. You can use the search bar on the top right hand side of the site to find whatever you want and browse through the wide range of beautiful creations that we keep in store. In case you are looking for a specific item or a product, you can type the name in the bar and press enter to get relevant results. If you are looking for someone’s wish list, you can find that too by simply entering their email address or contact number.
And if you are looking for a particular artisan, you can find them as well by simply entering the name of their company in the search bar without any spaces.
