Georgian Heritage Crafts Association from Tbilisi, Georgia is doing an amazing job moving Georgian Crafts to a modern era. With 350 handicraft  members, they’re helping a large group to have income, while also promoting buying Georgian.

Director Irina Mania: ‘our two stores are running well, and are sensitising Georgian buyers to the possibilities of buying local, on top of keeping the craft alive.’ They have three key revenue streams: their two shops, the Christmas market and corporate orders, which together make a profitable business.

They’re looking for a grant in shape of 30 000 euro to keep innovating with new designs and branch out internationally.
