In the world of the artisan, a generation is a measure of survival – of family survival as well as of the legacy of craft skills. When for a generation, skills are not practiced and handed down, they are lost. Children of artisans, vital to the perpetuation of craft heritage, are often forced to exit from the craft due to economic uncertainties. These compel them to seek alternative livelihoods, often at a tender age and far from home. Giving these children the option of a fulfilling career within their tradition depends on a sustained demand for handmade products of quality. Promoting this demand is CCI’s central purpose, within which the Council has initiated this unique scheme.
