Welcome to Kiku Handmade's wholesale website!
Shop Categories using the drop down, above left, or search features, top left. Further filter results once you are in a category.
Our initial minimum order is $200 - there is never a minimum on reorders and there are no per-piece minimums.
Minimums for custom are 3-5 pieces per design per style (ie coaster/catch-all/trivet), and we require a 50% non-refundable deposit on all custom work. If it's a new design, there will be a small screen setup fee (note that each color printed is a separate screen), pricing listed below. Need a custom design for your customer? See our pricing and policies below.* Ordering custom goods online? Go ahead and order "custom" and then let us know what you want (if a previous or newly approved design) or any color changes in the comments field. If it's a new design, please approve our mock up before ordering. You'll be charged the screen fee (and need to meet minimums). If it's a reorder, no fee/minimums. For artwork created by us, Kiku remains the sole owner of our designs, and may use them in the future. If a customer supplies a finished design, you retain ownership.

Shipping time varies with the season, but please allow 3-6 weeks for most orders. During our busy seasons (typically August through early December and February through late April), we schedule orders to ship monthly, and slots fill up quickly. We exhibit at the NY Now Show Handmade Designer-Maker in late August and early February each year, plus take part in Faire's Summer/Winter Markets. Orders placed before market will be placed first in line for production, orders taken during market are scheduled as we receive them (you may also schedule orders out further). We will email you with a shipment ETA when you place your order. Feel free to reach out with any questions!
Kiku Handmade sells our glass primarily to independent brick-and-mortar stores, galleries, museum shops. We typically don't sell to two independent brick-and-mortar stores in the same neighborhood/small town provided that store is meeting our annual minimum sales of $1000, or $500/season if in a seasonally open area. Stores may sell our work on their affiliated websites, but may not sell our goods on any Amazon, Ebay or Etsy shops. If two stores in the same area want to sell Kiku products that are different (i.e. buckles v. city-centric goods v. ornaments v. icons), we will contact both stores to make sure we’re all on the same page. If a store has not ordered at least $1000 worth of product in the last 12 months and a new store in the same area requests an order, the new store will be swapped in for that neighborhood/town and the old store will be put on a waiting list and the link will be removed from our Retailers page during scheduled updates.We are proud to list your store on our Retailers link and to link to you on our Instagram page, let us know your handle!
Returns and exchanges: Kiku does not accept returns, but will take current designs back for exchange with a new order of at least $100. We are not able to take back for exchange: ornaments, Judaica, custom, made-to-order, and discontinued designs, and “Greetings from Your City” goods. Customer is responsible for shipping charges back to us.
Kiku Handmade will charge a $45 fee for any returned checks. Visa/Mastercard/American Express, Discover and prepaid checks are accepted, and orders will be charged at the time of shipment. Custom orders require a prepayment of 50% of the custom portion of the order. Net terms may be made available for US stores with references at Kiku’s sole discretion. Past due balances will be charged a 2% interest rate per month from the date of the invoice.
