Abstract

Crafts has been the subject of study from many disciplines in social sciences. In this paper, we are concerned with understanding the economic framing to understand the crafts sector. The paper will attempt to present the various economic approaches that could be used with a special focus on cultural economics. Further, the paper will illustrate how the definitions of crafts used have an impact on the economic framing showing that both share a semiotic relationship.
