Our latest editions came out in a campaign around #seasonalindustry, celebrating artisanship that ebbs and flows with the seasons.
In the spirit of this intertwining of craft in context, space and time, we’ve put together 12 seasonal industries and the festivals that are celebrated in each country, for every month of the year. No better time than now to start planning for 2015’s eye openers.
Note: We’ve taken the liberty to choose a series of different links to information and brands to explore each craft and festival instead of writing again, what others have so expertly described before.
