4. Handicraft
I really like crafts from all around the world, issues which were made by hand with non-mechanized instruments, information of earlier generations, and with respect to nature. 5 years in the past I found conventional Ukrainian crafts, a lot of that are endangered due of lack of curiosity in them and really low profitability. So I requested myself, what can we as designers do to protect native crafts? Our resolution was a design expedition, involving well-known international artists and press, that helped us convey consideration to this problem on a nationwide and international stage. On our first journey we highlighted Roberto Bachiocchi, architect of Prada, La Perla, Miu Miu boutiques, Annaleena Leno, gifted inside designer and stylist from Sweden, editor of ICON journal and lots of others. This yr we took the undertaking to a nationwide stage with the assist of the Ukrainian Cultural Basis and obtained over 14 worldwide design consultants from all around the world – USA, UK, Germany, Belgium, Finland, and extra. Sharing my ardour of Ukrainian crafts with others conjures up me.
