While women-owned businesses deserve year-round recognition, there’s no better occasion than Women’s History Month (happening now!) to put our favorite creators on a pedestal. That’s why we teamed up with Etsy and their resident trend expert, Dayna Isom Johnson, to do just that.

“Etsy has always believed in celebrating and spotlighting the talents of our global community of female creatives and entrepreneurs,” says Johnson. “About four out of five Etsy sellers are women, so when shoppers choose to buy on Etsy, they’re choosing to support women-owned small businesses — this month, and all year round. So really, every day feels like Women’s History Month on Etsy.”

Below, meet five need-to-know female Etsy sellers and business owners making waves in the home space. These women work in a variety of mediums and specialties, from woodworking to glass blowing, many of which have been historically male-dominated fields. So in honor of Women’s History Month, get inspired by the styles and stories from just some of the many beautiful, unique, female-driven shops. Oh, and have another seller you love who also deserves a shoutout? Spread the word and leave a comment!

Erin Carter, founder and CEO of Perpetual Bliss Co. in Atlanta, operates her business under the tagline, “Whatever you do, may it bring you bliss.” That motto is embodied through the Etsy shop’s cool-meets-cozy-meets-contemporary home decor offerings. Every accent — from sustainable soy wax candles to a decorative marble arch — has been made using industrial raw concrete, intended to bring more texture to your space. Carter’s interior and retail design background ultimately takes the forefront with her luxurious, delight-inducing designs and compelling candle scents.

It’s hard to pick just one favorite find from Melanie Abrantes, a Filipina and Portuguese-Brazilian artist who marries high-quality craftsmanship with practical, heirloom-worthy pieces. Since establishing her own company in 2013, she’s been working primarily in wood and cork, using a process called lathing to create minimalist bowls, planters, bud vases, and more. Within her well-curated Etsy collection, you’ll also find the California-based creative’s first book, “Carve: A Simple Guide to Whittling,” designed to give readers their own basic woodworking know-how.

There are statement chandeliers, and then there are whimsical, bubble-inspired statement chandeliers handblown exclusively by The Light Factory, a woman-owned-and-operated business and 2021 Etsy Design Awards finalist. Founder Ashlie Beal designed the first cloud-shaped glass prototype for her own living room in 2013. Today, Beal and her team help clients conceptualize the perfect fixtures for their individual spaces, whether that’s creating a rainbow-hued pendant or a simple brass sconce. Best of all, the company donates 10 percent of profits to a handful of charities supporting women and children.

Good news, pet parents — dog beds can look decor-worthy, thanks to Gabriela Baiter’s shop LAY LO Pets. After noticing a gap in the pet accessory market, Baiter took matters into her own design-savvy hands with a collection of printed, modern covers for furry friends of all sizes. From simple grid patterns to colorful terrazzo, the styles lean into Scandi and mid-century modern influences. There’s even a fashion designer crossover, as seen in the brand’s sophisticated collaboration with Joseph Altuzarra. On top of living-room-friendly aesthetics, each dog bed touts a non-slip bottom, portable handle, and proper orthopedic support, but you can also buy the machine-washable covers solo if you already own an insert.

Looking to decorate her family’s first home on a budget, Ntebo Archer picked up a passion for refurbishing thrifted pieces — which then evolved into fully constructing her own furniture. Thus began Archer Home Designs, through which the self-taught seller constructs high-quality, one-of-a-kind wood tables and decor from start to finish, with help from her husband. As a mother of three sons, Archer also prioritizes durable, family-friendly fixtures, which shows in her sturdy, rustic designs.
