The chamber of crafts

Historically, crafts were functional, focused on use in the home, and the decorative component was at least important, but secondary. However, with the development of mass production and with the introduction of new materials, the NHP products and crafts were pushed in the gift-decorative niche with artistic and not utilitarian accent.

Traditional products are difficult to use in modern daily life, it is difficult to fit into the concept of modern interior. Objectively urgent need to re-evaluate their purpose and functionality.

We have created in 2018, the Chamber of crafts of the Nizhny Novgorod region is aimed to address not only the questions of popularization of crafts and Handicrafts, but also to reduce the gap between the attempts to preserve traditions unchanged and the need of the modern market is functional, practical products that meet relevant customer needs.

To our contemporaries the necessary household items and decor with a clear function, easy to use, affordable, expressive design, durable and practical, and these requirements of traditional items of national art crafts and decorative-applied arts practically ceased to meet.

This gap between tradition and modern requirements of the market endangers the very existence of traditional crafts. Now many companies nkhp are on the verge of extinction because of attachment to government support, lack of modern marketing and design services to businesses.

Only in our understanding of the way to preserve, develop and ensure the future life of nkhp and crafts, to awaken the interest of the current generation to the Russian tradition of making a tradition of popular, friendly, convenient, creative, available.
