The Home Centric on Etsy

I’ve been looking through Etsy recently for some inspiration and just beautiful handmade stuff when I spotted this seller! The Home Centric, all the way from India, a girl who calls design a lifestyle and who certainly lives through her work! Before starting her own business – making soft furnishing, Urvi was working for famous names such as Zara, Esprit, Bershka and others. And I could totally notice the tendency to design luxurious and chic pillows: flirty satin ruffles and ribbons, dazzling sequins and more – that’s what I call a fancy pillow! I took a look at all the items from Urvi’s Etsy shop and highlighted the most eye-catching and appealing to me:

Perfect for a modern living room or a girly bedroom, these pillows are one of a kind, so beautiful and handmade! (remember what I said about handmade, right? the coolest tag nowadays!). And I think these pillows could be a great gift for Mother’s day! We know that every woman loves pillows!

What do you think about them? I say they’re lovely!

    Handmade by a poor factory worker, maybe. There is no way the owner of the shop handmade all >4000 total of these…no way. I’m disappointed Etsy allows this.

    harry is right.. these are definitely made by poor working class, who hardly get any money for their craft..
    etsy should filter artists like these or allow if only they maintain a fair trade agreement . personally, living in india (right now in usa) i can hire so many locals doing this..but etsy is not about sweat shop art..
    i hope this seller at least cited their names or existence.

    True, Please do not get carried away by the handmade tag, it surely is “handmade by someone else” in this case, do you seriously believe that she made all that herself? She is definitely taking advantage of the fact that there are people like you who will gush about the handmade bit. whats funny is that no one has reported this clear case of misusing the system. (ps: and you did her a big favour by posting about her stuff)
