NY NOW's Handmade Collection adds 39 new exhibitors

A comprehensive, multi-media group of new artisans has been accepted into the juried HANDMADE Collection for the summer 2014 edition of NY NOW, the Market for Home + Lifestyle (formerly NYIGF). A total of 39 new exhibitors will make their NY NOW debut – as part of nearly 500 exhibitors featured in the HANDMADE Collection’s Designer Maker and Global Design sections – August 16-19, 2014, at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
 
Additional related highlights during the summer market include the launch of NY NOW’s new “Maker Project,” which promotes artisans and their handcrafts, a five part seminar series hosted by CRAFT (Craft Retailers & Artisans For Tomorrow), and the return of Artisan Resource, a concurrent tradeshow for volume import handmade resources.
 
“These newcomers to HANDMADE all reflect the best in innovative, creative design and technique,” said Michelle Karol, HANDMADE sales manager. “They also showcase an impressively diverse array of materials and home and lifestyle products.”
 
Located in Javits Center North, Designer Maker will showcase 350 limited-production makers across all categories and media resources from 37 states and nine countries. In addition to these handmade in America resources, artisan groups from France, Germany and the United Kingdom will bring some 40 additional individual designer makers to the summer market. A showcase space for HANDMADE’s “Emerging Makers” will spotlight new designers in business for a year or less, as well as artisans who are entering the wholesale marketplace for the first time.
 
A range of media are represented among the 32 newly-accepted Designer Maker exhibitors, including ceramics (Clementine Porcelain, New York Stoneware, Workaday Handmade); glass (Artech Studios, Kiku Handmade, Solinglass); paper (Margins); metal (Madacsi Studios); and textiles (clothe my soul, Katherine Rally Textiles, stitch and tickle). Jewelry makers include Cinderella Garbage, inSync Design and With Roots.
 
Seven companies have been accepted into Global Design, which presents a collection of 150 exhibitors from around the world with a focus on traditional craftsmanship, design, and community building through fair trade practices. First-time Global Design exhibitors include: Alegria Home (home textiles made in Mexico); BeadforLife (jewelry made in Uganda); Calyz Textiles (home furnishings made in India); Christa Louise LLC (scarves handmade in Mexico); dot2knot (home textiles and apparel made in Pakistan); Ecuador Trade Office (handcrafts from Ecuador); and Manos Zapotecas (rugs, pillows, bags made in Mexico).
