Etsy continues to grow, and wants to help its sellers do so, too. On Monday, the Brooklyn-based craft marketplace launched Etsy Manufacturing, which helps pair its makers with small manufacturers so they can meet demand and expand.

Etsy Manufacturing aims to not only help both sellers who have little time to fulfill larger orders, but also smaller manufacturers, some of whom have lost business to huge operations in countries where labor is cheaper.

Currently in beta, manufacturers can fill out a profile on Etsy, and sellers will eventually be able to search through them by criteria such as price, location, and the services they offer.
