Online Shops for designers and makers. If you're involved in the production process of the products you're selling, TiliShop is for you.
That sums it up in a few sentences. But there is a lot more to it, of course. We’re not building yet another shopping cart. This is the result of more than half a decade of research. And fifteen years of hands-on experience building online shops. Not only for ourselves but for other makers, designers and small creative companies.
A little History
The first time we spoke about building TiliShop was roughly seven years ago. We created the branding, a name and a website. We were ready to start building. But then we realised we lacked fundamental expertise to build a strong product.
A bit of research would benefit the product. So we made the decision to postpone and gather more information.
little lot of Research
Fast forward five years to December 2018. Finally, we felt ready to push ahead. We gathered the necessary funds. And learned a lot about the real needs of running a small online business.
In the meantime, we had worked together with goldsmiths, architects, furniture designers, industrial designers and an online printing company. We gained invaluable real-world insights.
Additionally, we experimented ourselves by launching various mini brands. We designed and produced a series of ceramic vessels. Set up an accessory line. Did a pop-up gallery for a year in Barcelona and created an art print shop.
What started as an intention to do a bit of research, ended up being five years of it. It took a lot more time than we anticipated, but TiliShop will be better for it. For sure.
Now, after two years of hard work, the product is almost ready. In a few months, we’ll start handing out free accounts to anyone interested.
These are exciting times for us. So much of our time and effort has gone into building a fabulous product. We can’t wait to show you.
