The Craft Library would like to thank EFCO for their support without which this website would not be possible.


Efco Creative GMbH is one of Germany's leading suppliers of craft and hobby products. They offer over 15,000 product lines, shipped throughout Europe and the rest of the World.


New for 2015 are Efco Creative's Texture Mats which when combined with Cernit polymer clay allow crafters to create detailed patterned jewellery with ease. Also, very popular at the moment is their Paracord range - a product that appeals to both boys and girls of any age.


Another hot product is their great range of PappArt, especially their papier maché letters which can be decorated in a variety of ways including painting and decoupage. Personalise them with assorted embellishments such as ribbons, crystals, sequins etc to create unique room decorations.

efco creative GmbH started life as a home business in 1974, founded by Inge and Lutz Erler. The company grew and 20 years later their children, Pia and Martin, joined them. What started out as a small home business has grown over the years into a large company operating from a warehouse and distribution centre covering 11,000 square meters. Today they distribute thousands of craft products as well as manufacturing their own well know brand, Efco creative emotions.

Still very popular with crafters is their Efcolor range of low temperature enamelling powders. These powders can be used not only on their extensive range of copper blanks but also on glass, wood, ceramic, mountboard and many other materials. It truly is a versatile product!


Among Efco Creative's range of own brand craft products is the fabulous Sock Stop range. With this easy to use non-slip latex based paint you can make your own slipper socks. Efco Creative's Kumihimo weaving discs and interchangeable pattern templates make the traditional art of Japanese braiding so easy anyone can do it! And you don't have to be an artist to produce a professional finish when decorating glass and ceramics with their Color-Dekor 180ºC decorative foils.
