Traditional crafts, according to UNESCO, are products made completely by hand or with the help of simple tools and reflect the creativity, the culture and the heritage of the craftsperson. Craft is a language of material, provenance and making. It is learning the value of things and that value is not solely monetary.  Crafts have unique aesthetic pleasures in them.
