Our Favourite Kawaii Artists, Designers & Makers

If you’re tired of searching through Etsy and Instagram trying to find cute artists to support, we’ve made a list of our favourite independent artists and designers worldwide for handmade, unique and small batch products with original characters and designs.

We have personally shopped at these sites and are satisfied with the products and service provided by all. Most will ship internationally but support those near you to save on shipping and find out about local events. You can also browse our guide to The Best Kawaii Shops Worldwide which includes shops selling products by artists and makers.
