The master thesis NEO CRAFT focuses on the potential of innovation of traditional craft mainly focused on techniques practised in Switzerland.

An increasing demand for products with personality, story and traditional origin provide traditional craft with additional value and a yet barely utilised potential. The desire for authentic and handmade products within a globalised culture indicate that the time for an update of traditional craft is now!
