Brazilian arts and crafts vary up and down the country, but they tell the story of a nation’s creative culture  Arts and crafts in Brazil represent an artisan industry that puts the means of production and manufacture at the hands of a community or family. There is no specialisation or mechanisation of the work involved, which makes the handiwork that much more important culturally as it often represents the artistic history of a given region. This is also why arts and crafts feature so prominently on community tourism itineraries, and why pieces are sold at local fairs and events. …
