Today the Arts and Crafts are on the brink of extinction because we cannot survive from handicrafts as our ancestors did all their lives. We need to live off our work.
ARTISANAL INDEPENDENCE, DIGNITY AND VALORIZATION
‘’We Revolutionized The Market Just By Making It Fair, By Working In A Dignified Economy.''
Since the age of 5, I have been working in this art without ever receiving a penny. I made a lot of baskets like those you can still find today on fairs for sale by retailers, and a lot even in stores. The biggest pity I have is to know that whoever made all those pieces, never received worthily for them. I made Victoria handmade a turning point in this market. And I regret those who have not been able to do so before.
