The new policy has expanded the number of people allowed to work in a designer’s business. Under the new policy, a manufacturer is defined as “any outside business that helps make your items”, using a “foundry that casts jewelry you’ve designed” as an example. Etsy is a popular and trusted platform, which I’m personally a huge fanof. I think this new policy could be a great opportunity for designers whose items are manufactured in countries like Ghana to offer limited edition or one-off items to expand their customer base.
