“Craft Matters” seeks out Italian artisans and craftspeople with unique, handmade products to share with the global community. Written profiles tell their stories, and products are available for purchase on our website.
Artisanal goods have been characteristic of Italy for centuries. However, Italy’s artisans and craftspeople face competition with global corporations that can mass produce souvenirs at rapid speeds. Craft Matters preserves authentic craftsmanship by sharing the stories of independent artisans across Italy. Learn about the faces behind Italy’s traditional crafts - such as leather, ceramics, jewelry, and more - and shop from small local businesses.
Craft Matters digitally connects readers across the world with Italian artisans and their goods, which can be purchased through Romeing’s e-commerce site. Bring a touch of Italy to your home, handcrafted by the top makers, designers, and artisans across the country.
