Traditionally craft objects were made for domestic or ceremonial use. Today these objects can be purchased as collectibles and decorative objects in both the local and the tourism market. This makes craft a viable means of earning a living for many thousands of South Africans.
The potential in this country for export and tourism is enormous and it is imperative that crafters be ready to meet the challenge.
