Welcome!

If you’re an artisan, run a craft business or support the craft sector in Afghanistan, then the Artisan Toolkit is for you. The Artisan Toolkit is a practical guide to building a business, designed specifically for the Afghan craft sector.

The objective of the Toolkit is to help artisans access markets, so they can grow their businesses. It does this by providing artisans with the knowledge and tools to overcome common business challenges and improve practices in key business areas, from production to marketing to design.

The Toolkit has been written from a buyer’s perspective, so Afghan artisans can better meet buyer’s expectations, particularly in international markets where demand for handmade, unique craft products is increasing.

The Artisan Toolkit aims to help artisans grow their businesses and the Afghan economy.
