Artisan Resource grows at summer market
April 23, 2014,
White Plains, N.Y. - Look for increased global representation and an expanded exhibit floor at the summer 2014 edition of Artisan Resource, a market offering U.S.-based volume importers, direct import retailers and wholesalers the opportunity to connect with international artisanal producers.
The fifth semi-annual Artisan Resource will run Saturday, August 16, through Tuesday, August 19, at New York City’s Passenger Ship Terminal Pier 94, in conjunction with NY Now, The Market for Home + Lifestyle (formerly NYIGF).
Nine countries will bring multiple companies to Artisan Resource as part of government-sponsored pavilions. Two of these— Trade and Investment Kwazulu-Natal from South Africa and ProMexico—are first-time participants in the show.
Individual artisans exhibiting independently for the first time this summer include: Clayworks (ceramic tableware, tiles and decorative accessories from Pakistan); Ecamenac (home furnishings and decorative accessories from Cameroon); Kara Weaves (home textiles from India); Maiz (organic textiles and bags from Guatemala); Rangotri (hand block-printed textiles from India) and Sudarshan (handmade textiles from India).
