As part of our new partnership with the Department for International Trade (DIT), Craft Scotland showcased the work of 11 UK-based makers at renowned international trade fair NY NOW in February 2019.
This was a unique opportunity for 11 makers to exhibit and sell their work within the Handmade Designer Maker section of the show, where they were part of a larger Craft Scotland presence.
NY NOW is widely regarded as the leading fair for contemporary design across home, lifestyle, handmade and gift products. Therefore, it is a valuable, potentially lucrative chance for makers to reach international buyers with a passion for high-quality craft.
The four-day wholesale event attracts approximately 20,000 visitors, with 40% being trade buyers.
