"An artisan is someone that works with their hands to create unique, functional, and decorative items using traditional techniques.
Artisans are masters of craft and create products such as clothes, toys, tools, or furnishings. These artisanal techniques are learned through decades of tribal knowledge and passed down within families and communities. Many artisans depend on resources from their nearby surroundings to create these items. In economic terms, an artisan is a small producer of goods who owns their products and makes a living from their trade."

That statement was right for the past; now artisans apart from skills, have to deal with increasing bureaucracy, high taxation, and much more competition. The only way to survive is to enhance the beauty and quality of the products.
