Editorials

Always in the spirit of promoting the world of bespoke artists, and art crafts, Madineurope will publish some of these professions’ portraits. From disappearing traditions to customized solutions, from ancestral methods to the utensils used, discover unique talents. Whether you’re an artisan yourself or a potential client, Madineurope aims at enlightening you and surprising you with these snapshots of what the crafts sector looks like nowadays.

We thank all people who patiently accepted to answer our questions and we hope that all those who were not interviewed will not feel left out. It's obviously not possible to interview every professional. We also thank all partners who accepted to share their own editorials with Mad'in Europe.

Please, see attached to each article the link to all members of that profession which have registered on Madineurope. You will also be able to share your opinion and experience through the comment function.
