Handmade Korea Fair 2015 is due to run for four days from July 23 to 26 in COEX in Seoul. Marking the 5th edition this year, the fair will take place with a larger scale than previous years, being attended by about 500 companies and artists from 12 countries where about 20,000 artworks and a variety of hand-made items will be displayed.
Handmade Korea Fair is a cultural festival for artists and the public, which has been held at COEX, Seoul since 2011 based on concept of “real open art fair.” The fair has unlimited boundaries, allowing anyone who is engaged in creating and designing something by hand to participate. The fair seeks to provide an opportunity for artists to develop commercial products and explore sales channels, and for the public to see and experience artworks and have easy access to artistic products, while applying pieces of artwork to their daily lives.
Under the main theme of “Hand-made Life,” one of the most important goals of this year’s event is to expand the base for the hand-made business in Korea where many people tend to associate the hand-made products with fashion accessories or small living items. With this goal in mind, the organizers are planning to present much more diverse items covering from life style items to hand-made foodstuffs. Visitors will be able to see and experience much wider range of products at the newly added furniture zone, pet & baby zone, living zone, home-made food zone and fashion zone in the upcoming show. Handmade Korea Fair 2015 also provides various events including fashion shows, performances, seminars, and so on.
