Madeit Artist Benchmarks

Welcome to Madeit's Handmade Benchmark!

We're all about celebrating true Australian craftsmanship. This checklist is our way of ensuring that every piece on Madeit shines with genuine creativity and effort. By following these guidelines, you're not only showcasing your skills but also joining a community that values real handcrafted quality.

Please note that meeting the guidelines does not guarantee acceptance onto the Madeit platform, we are a curated artisan marketplace.

~ Please note these benchmarks have been introduced for all new Artists wanting to sell on the platform from 4th October 2023. There may still be some items on the platform that are not quite suited ~
