The Craft Subsector in Barbados 2015

The Barbadian craft sector has evolved significantly throughout the years. In its infant stages the sector had the traditional cottage industry structure where artisans produced practical products for individual domestic use and later souvenir items for the tourist market, but has since shifted to factory-based operations producing goods for both the local and export markets.
