About us

At LoveCrafts we’re building online communities for crafters: homes for makers where they can find inspiration for their latest projects, learn new techniques, easily buy all their supplies and share their creations with like-minded makers around the world.
Since launching in 2012, we’ve grown incredibly quickly thanks to the hard work of our team of smart, kind makers based in London, Kyiv and in the USA. The Financial Times has recognized LoveCrafts as one of the fastest growing companies in Europe, and we’ve raised $55 million from three of Europe’s leading venture capital firms (Balderton Capital, Highland Europe and Scottish Equity Partners).
We’re playing with the very best in web, mobile, social, commerce and media technology as we create the perfect digital business for all things craft related.  Our team is filled with ambitious, curious, entrepreneurial and occasionally kooky makers. We hire and nurture inquisitive, creative minds looking to flourish in a supportive and collaborative environment.
