Supporting Traditional Skills

These designers support traditional skills through their production process.

They work to strengthen the sense of identity where a traditional way of life may have been weakened or ended. They are preserving local heritage, using methods that the local’s grandparents or great grandparents used, reviving techniques that are in danger of disappearing. These actions will help economic growth from within the community. Investments are done where the products are manufactured, and the use of local expertise is encouraged. These designers help communities achieve a local economy, sustain good jobs, and provide a measure of self-sufficiency.
