What is a Handicraft?
Tuesday, November 27, 2012

 


It is an object or product of cultural community identity made by continuous manual process, aided by rudimentary implements and some by mechanical functions that lighten certain tasks. The basic raw material is transformed and usually comes from the region inhabited by the craftsman. The domain of the traditional techniques of the artisan community heritage allows to create different objects of varying quality and expertise, also imprinting symbolic and ideological values of the local culture. The craftsmanship is created as lasting or ephemeral product, and its original function is determined in the social and cultural level, in this sense, it may be intended for domestic use, ceremonial ornaments, clothing, or as working implement. Today, handicraft production is heading increasingly towards commercialization. The approval and dominion of the native raw materials makes craft products have an own community or regional identity, which allows the creation of a line of products with particular shapes and decorative designs that distinguishes them from others.
