Types of Crafts & Trade

Here at CraftCover, we don’t believe that craft businesses should be forced to fit a model that is not designed for them. That’s why we’ve worked hard to develop a comprehensive insurance policy specific to the UK craft industry.

Below, you’ll find examples of the types of craft businesses we can cover. We know that creative business people would much rather be spending time on their crafts than worrying about their insurance.

With our help, you can concentrate on creating beautiful crafts safe in the knowledge that you have the right level of cover.

If you are unsure if we can provide cover for your business, please contact our friendly team today!
