What is Boticca? Boticca is an online boutique where you can find the most unique jewelry and fashion accessories made by top emerging designers from around the world. It is curated and edited by a team of fashion experts, designers, stylists, editors, bloggers and collectors who illustrate the culture, stories and inspiration behind the collections on the site. Boticca was born out of an inspired moment when one of the founders discovered a rare find in the bustling Medina of Marrakesh, and realized that such unique design talent was almost impossible to find.
Via Boticca’s online platform, designers can exhibit their exquisite pieces and connect directly with their customers. This enables the customer to buy directly from the designer, interact with them at each stage of the design and order process. The website’s international customer base represents a burgeoning movement for unique, high-impact fashion from inspiring independent designers.
When I went to check out Boticca, I was pleasantly surprised by the variety I found. Hundreds of Designers from more than forty countries sold everything from bracelets to necklaces, rings, scarves, iPad accessories, to totes. Similar to Etsy, everything is handcrafted, but Boticca is way less cutsey and quirky.

I really like the simple fact that Boticca is a carefully curated handmade marketplace with a sharp eye for fashion and design. Simply done but not so easy to find. There are many handmade marketplaces online these days. But what sets each apart are the quality of their handmades. All which come from stringent curating and moderating of their artists and designers.
