Amazon has evolved a lot since its inception. Once they sold only books, but their inventory has since expanded to include anything from potting soil to a pillowcase with Nicholas Cage’s face. And now, with the introduction of Amazon Handmade, you can buy things on Amazon that you can’t buy anywhere else. Amazon Handmade connects you to handcrafted products made by artisans in more than 80 countries — all with the convenience of, well, shopping at Amazon (and yes, that means some items are Prime-eligible!).

When you buy from Amazon Handmade, you can feel confident in knowing that you’re supporting independent artisans and that the products you’re buying are truly homemade. Before they join the platform, Amazon investigates each maker’s methods to ensure that their products are handmade according to their guidelines. There are quite a few things to see here, and it can be fun to browse. But to get you started, we’ve put together a list of 13 of our favorite products.
