Handmade goods have gained much attention in the past decade or so and they continue to get some right here, right now as well. According to experts, the global handicrafts market is trade driven, due to low priced products. The key handicraft vendors in the global handicrafts market are Asian Handicrafts, Fakih Handicrafts, Shandong Laizhou Arts and Crafts, Ten Thousand Villages, Native Crafts and Arts, The Handicrafts Gallery, Minhou Minxing Weaving, NGOC Dong Ha Nam, and Oriental Handicrafts. At Artisna, we aim to provide artisans around the world with comprehensive understanding of this expanding market. We associate with our market analysts to educate craftsmen about the various opportunities, challenges, trends and preferences that impact the demand of these goods and directly affect the incomes of creators.
By being a part of this endeavor, you can play an important role in enabling this skilled workforce to identify and understand the key drivers of growth in this sector. Artisna works together with organizations and institutions that prepare artisans for the challenges of the handicraft industry.
- Assess the future impact of and restraints on the market;
- Uncover potential demand;
- Identify competitive forces within the market, for instance low priced machine produced goods;
- Provide information on market size and future potential, etc.
All this is an effort by Artisna to organize this scattered and haphazard industry. By making this our sole focus we intend to develop this sector into a strong source of employment for the needy. A large part of the population of many countries can benefit from this industry as the initial investment is close or equal to nil and the skills acquired remain intact for life. This makes it possible for the poor to rise above from a life of impoverishment.
