Tired of stocking the same products as the store down the street? We totally get it: when everyone follows similar homeware trends, it can make for an unoriginal shopping experience, and also makes it hard to stand out from the crowd.

So if you’re looking for wholesale quirky homeware, you’re in the right place. Over 2,000 unique, independent brands sell wholesale through Creoate, so you’re guaranteed great variety.

Let’s take a look:
1. Padg Made
Based in: Bristol, UK
About: ‘Vibrant, colourful handmade items, that do good for the world, too. When we started Padg we decided early on that we wanted the things we make to have an extra purpose and be a vehicle for positive change in the local environment. To do this we include a small amount of wildflower seeds with everything Padg Made and actively encourage all our customers to start their own pollinator havens at home. Our mission is to get everyone to plant more wild flowers to help save our declining native bee population. Our small Padg jar candle packaging is even designed to be the perfect starter pot for the seeds (it’s shaped like a plant pot), so you can plant the seeds straight away.’
Shop Padg Made for: Vibrant candles and wax melts that do good.

Based in: The UK
About: ‘Anther + Moss was born out of a frustration that so many plant pots just don’t have proper drainage. We believe that buying a nice plant pot and having to drill a hole in it – or worse, putting a plastic pot inside – is not good enough. Lack of drainage can lead to a whole host of plant problems – it’s one of the biggest reasons people struggle to keep their house plants alive. (Pots without holes are very unforgiving if you’re a little heavy-handed with the watering can one day.) It’s for this reason that every Anther + Moss plant pot has a drainage hole and comes with a matching saucer — so you can be assured your plant’s always in a good home.’
Shop Anther + Moss for: Modern plant pots with excellent drainage.

Based in: Waardamme, Belgium
About: ‘Yapatkwa was born out of passion for textiles and textile design by Sabine and Tom who both have more than 20 years of experience in home textiles, mostly jacquard woven, an industry in which Flanders (northern part of Belgium) is definitely standing out from the crowd. Sabine as a talented textile designer and Tom as an experienced trader decided to join hands and put their shoulders under Yapatkwa, with the intention to create and produce jacquard woven textiles with decorative, stylish designs. We see it as a true challenge to offer an outstanding quality product that appeals to the taste of the contemporary consumer. By the way, yapatkwa is phonetic for the French “il n’y a pas de quoi”, meaning “you’re welcome”, which is what Sabine and Tom like to say when their customers say thanks for offering a great product.’
Shop Yapatkwa for: Funky animal-themed cushion covers.
