Change is inevitable, and the advent of fall marks many milestones--the end of summer travel to exotic places, the start of a new school year, and crisp breezes begin to chill the air. Warmer jackets, darker colors and scarves beckon from the far reaches of closets everywhere. Change is also happening in developing countries thanks to IFAM | Online, a program of the International Folk Art Alliance, as it helps artists to grow their economies in communities around the world.
September means numerous holiday celebrations in South and Central Asia. Here at home, Labor Day is just around the corner. To honor the hard work of master folk artists in South and Central Asia and the traditionally-made items they bring to market, IFAM | Online is offering an exclusive shopping guide featuring beautiful handmade folk art from these regions.
