Thimble Launches Product Liability Insurance For Crafters & Makers

Home-based Manufacturers and Craftspeople Can Now Purchase Coverage Through Thimble’s Expanded Product Liability Policy

NEW YORK, NY (June 2, 2021) Thimble, the insurtech startup that provides business insurance by the month or by the job, today announced the expansion of their offering to include product liability coverage to the increasing number of vendors and merchants selling homemade goods. 

Candlemakers, soapmakers, jewelry makers, leather craftspeople, and small apparel manufacturers will now have access to both general and product liability coverage with Thimble’s policies, providing coverage for bodily injury or property damage arising from the sale of goods manufactured or sold by the insured.

“Surprisingly, this type of coverage is often excluded by other providers,” said Jay Bregman, CEO & Founder of Thimble. “With the rise of home-based businesses, we’re excited to cover business owners who are turning their passions into profits whether at the local flea market or on online marketplaces like Etsy and Amazon.”

As the chosen business insurance solution for over 200+ professions, Thimble’s latest expansion into these new vendor categories is a continuation of their commitment to putting the needs of the small business owner first. From expanding into monthly insurance policies in early 2020, to offering Business Equipment Protection earlier this year, Thimble ensures small businesses are equipped with the protection they need to succeed on their own terms.
