Handcraft techniques –new applications

I see folk art as a combination between the culture of arts & crafts, materials, and indigenous culture. This tradition is a subject of great significance and it has answered to this day to very demanding decorative and functional needs. Since my early years as a designer I explore and work in this field, creating technical, educational and sustainable production programs to stimulate the preservation of craft skills and natural resources which are what gives meaning to the expression of craftsmanship.

For some years now many designers have been working on this field , but there’s still a lot of work to do. Craftsmanship has been and has the potential to become the basis of livelihood for many families in the world. This is made possible by the creation of multidisciplinary alliances that work together to design sustainable programs to find the balance between tradition, innovation and adequacy in this sector.
