WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-Artisans from 21 countries worldwide will be represented at the winter 2014 edition of Artisan Resource, which returns in February to run concurrently with NY NOW.
Four countries—Cameroon, Ethiopia, Niger and Uzbekistan—will make their Artisan Resource debut at Artisan Resource, which takes place Feb. 1-4 at New York City’s Passenger Ship Terminal Pier 94. Exhibitors also hail from 17 returning countries: Afghanistan, Egypt, Guatemala, Haiti, India, Indonesia, Madagascar, Mexico, Morocco, Nepal, Pakistan, Panama, Philippines, Peru, South Africa, Tunisia and Vietnam. Four of these countries—Indonesia, Panama, Peru and Tunisia—are represented through government-sponsored pavilions.
