As of March 2017, some item types on Etsy (Handmade, Vintage, and Craft Supply) will have additional attributes available to list the materials used for your items.
In the coming months, we will add more attributes to their relevant categories. Attribute options for materials will improve as more become available.
The attributes you can choose from are dependent on the categories and subcategories you select when listing an item:
- Some categories will have material-based attributes, particularly in the Craft Supply item type.
- Other categories may only display the core attributes of colour, occasion, and celebration.
If you don’t see material-based attributes for your particular listing, don’t worry.
You can highlight your materials in other aspects of your listing. Listing your materials in tags or item descriptions are a few options still available to you.
