A World of Craft, previously Afroart, was established in Stockholm 1967.
The A World of Craft stores have over the years been a watering hole for anyone who has a passion for crafts.
A World of Craft collaborates with local artisans to highlight the craftsmanship of the developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
A great deal of A World of Crafts catalog is developed by A World of Craft Studio, A World of Craft's own design team. The idea is to use design as a tool, to develop and market traditional crafts and thereby help to create jobs in the regions where the craft is currently the main source of income. This give unique traditions of crafts a possibility to ;survive and A World of Crafts clients get access to the world's craftsmanship.
A World of Craft has four stores; three in Stockholm, where one is a "shop in shop" in the warehouse of Åhléns City, and a Webshop. A World of Craft also runs an extensive wholesale business with hundreds of retailers.
A World of Craft imports directly from artisans or through Fair Trade organizations.
