The International Folk Art Market Collection is back for the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market June 22-28.
Presented in partnership between the Dallas Market Center and the International Folk Art Alliance, the collection features dozens of artisans from around the world showcasing their wares and sharing their stories through their art.
The exhibition will be held in the Atrium of the World Trade Center, where buyers can purchase handmade jewelry, gifts and decorative items and learn about artisans representing India, Uzbekistan, Laos, Guatemala and other countries.
“We are thrilled to welcome these artists to Dallas as part of our summer market experience showcasing unique, handcrafted and one-of-a-kind products from around the world,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO of the Dallas Market Center. “Not only will buyers see beautiful products to share with their customers, but they will be able to meet the makers in person and understand the direct impact their purchases have on artist communities.”
Artisans are part of the International Folk Art Alliance (IFAA), which hosts the International Folk Art Market, the largest of its kind in the world, each summer in Santa Fe, NM The collection is designed to honor and economically support artisans, who are often able to secure a year-round income based on their sales in the United States, creating a lasting economic impact on their communities. The fair also gives buyers the chance to learn more about the intricacies of craftsmen’s work and to stand out from the competition with specially selected products.
