Gina Rogari

The "Global Market Assessment for Handicrafts, Vol. 1" is a 2006 study by USAID on the state of the global market for artisan goods.

This study provides an overview and analysis of the global market for handicrafts and the key trends that affect producers in developing countries, with the ultimate objective of offering practical recommendations for the Haitian handicraft sector. This paper represents Volume I of the Global Market Assessment for Handicrafts study and includes Chapters I and II. Chapter I covers the global market for handicrafts and key industry trends and Chapter II focuses on the end-market opportunities for Haitian products. The document is accompanied by a video: Handmade in Haiti: The Perspective of Global Buyers, which presents an overview of the U.S. market for handicrafts and buyer perspectives on Haitian handicraft products.
