International Craft Day was inaugurated by Dr. Ghada Hijjawi Qaddumi, President, World Craft Council-APR. The objective of day is to bring back focus on lost craft & folk tradition, and fast disappearing 'Handmade'. It is time to share “Good stories untold" and preserve "Skills" that has been acquired over centuries and ages. These crafts may have originated at different places, times or by different dynasty but they all look like as if they have originated from one culture, one tradition & one world. The world craft has certainly one genre, and that is the spirit of people, their culture and endless passion of craftsman and artisan. International Craft Day every year celebrates "One World, One Craft", that transcends tradition & culture beyond boundaries to a world that is one in its timeless tradition.  Lets celebrate this important day and help tradition & culture to revive, helping millions of families across the world that still practices their passion and tradition...
