crafted-theme-v1-patch-03 – default-download

Hello.

Thank you for taking a look at my ecommerce website template Crafted™. This online store theme was created to help you sell more of your handmade or boutique products. Ideal for smaller stores with a handful of product categories but can be easily adapted for larger stores.

See how other Bigcommerce stores are using the theme.

Includes friendly theme support

I've been so happy with the Crafted theme I purchased but was even happier with the level of after support I received when I emailed to ask a couple of questions to customize it to my store/products. Jacob got back to me almost straight away and then helped me fix up my few things so I could get my store up and running quickly! I'm very glad I chose this theme, it has exceeded my expectations. THANKYOU

Owner, Yummy Mummy Food Company

Jacob, You are so helpful! Thank you so much!!! This is the best customer service I have ever received with theme implementation!!
