This text discusses the regeneration and re-evaluation of the handmade and craft cultures as a means of sustaining the cultural heritage and identity of Moldavian, Transilvanian and Maramures artisan communities.The analysis looks at the revival of crafts and their role as sustainable methods of production in the Romanian counties. The focus is on craft production as a cooperative system of making, sustaining traditional ways of life (where home is self-sufficient model of production and consumption). It investigates the regeneration of the handmade culture as a means of sustaining the cultural heritage and identity of Romanian artisan communities; and the concept of the folk market as a potential mechanism for elevating the production and circulation of craft products in a ‘closed economy’.
