Handicrafts Association of Bhutan (HAB) was established in 2005 and got formally registered as civil society Organization in 2011 under the CSO act of Bhutan 2007 as a pioneer centre for the promotion of vibrant and sustainable Bhutanese handicrafts. Today, it serves as a platform for the promotion of traditional handicrafts and preservation of culture, community and local environments.
HAB strives to create a democratic and empowering space - a common roof under which a range of stakeholders can exchange ideas and collaborate in supporting artisans and craftsmen of all thirteen arts and crafts through policy intervention and strengthening capacity and technical skills to meet the changing market demands. We also work to shift consumer perspectives and raise the cultural value placed on crafts.
