Product/Service Summary

Launched in Dec’2014, WorldArtCommunity.com is a peer to peer marketplace for all things creative that
- Empowers Artists, Designers & Crafters to sell directly
- Enables Discovery of handcrafted products

We believe that inspite of growing preference for hand made products, the avenues to buy and sell are limited with high third party dependencies. Being a peer to peer platform we're trying to solve for this gap by having creators of handmade products sell directly and in this process build their own brands.
