About Us

Craftedvan is made up of two of us, Erica and Diana. We specialize in magnetic bookmarks, locally made from Vancouver which resulted from our obsession with creating. Our company has been able to grow because of our addiction to bringing smiles to customers’ faces when they open up a book. We take inspiration from around us, hide in our craft room and make bookmarks while enjoying our favourite shows and snacks! Our day jobs as as a designer and nurse allow us to put love, care and expertise into every item we create.

Together, our high school friendship has blossomed into a small business we are proud to call Craftedvan. Craftedvan sells mainly online, with over 20,000 sales on Etsy and our own website . We have attended many large scale spring and winter craft fairs including Etsy Made In Canada Vancouver Market, Make It Vancouver/Edmonton, and Got Craft.
