Handicraft and Design: Translating the past into the future

The field of handicrafts includes tradition, aesthetics, rarity and emotion. Artisans creatively and innovatively express a know-how that has been transmitted over time. UNESCO is the only United Nations agency to have a global vision of the economic and sociocultural role of handicrafts in society, encouraging the role of design as an important link between tradition and modernity.
