The New Orleans Craft Mafia formed in June 2005 and consists of several independent artists in a variety of media: jewelry, clothing, accessories, bath & body, home decor, and more.

The New Orleans Craft Mafia models itself after the original Craft Mafia in Austin, Texas, 
where a small group of talented ladies joined together to support each other in their crafty business endeavors. 

Interest grew and Craft Mafias have been popping up all over the world.
