Los Angeles-based textile artist, designer, and creative consultant Rachel Craven
holds a deep appreciation for simple, high- quality handmade goods. As cofounder of the popular biannual Echo Park Craft Fair
, Craven has quite the eye for designers and creators of all kinds.
Twice a year, the two-day art and design event showcases the talent of tons of creative minds in an array of mediums—from ceramics and jewelry to perfumery and clothing design to woodworking and fabric art. Here, Craven, whose own home features many of these designers
, has rounded up a few of her favorite picks from Craft Fair vendors to curate a seriously a unique gift guide of handmade and one-of-a-kind pieces. This season's Craft Fair may be over, but you can still order some of these truly special gifts online.
