This list is changing from day to day... We add info as we gather it. Please add your own info to supplier pages in the comments section. Pay attention to your supplies, some of the items these suppliers carry may not be compliant, but all the contact information you need is here to ask about their products. If you can, leave a comment and let us know what you find out.
The purpose of this page has always been to provide the handmade community with a list of suppliers that test and comply with lead and phthalate laws. Crafters do not want to use supplies that will fail testing, for those that are in the categories that require testing, so we started to seek out suppliers that offered the information we needed before we buy, or test.
This information should not be used as testing avoidance if your items are not exempt from the law.
What is CPSIA?
The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA) was passed by U.S. Congress and signed into law by President Bush on Aug. 14, 2008. CPSIA is designed to allow The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) to better regulate the safety of products made and imported for sale in the U.S. CPSIA also contains regulations that are intended to make products for children under age 12 safer by requiring manufacturers and importers to show that these products do not have harmful levels of lead and phthalates.
