The New Traditional
Heritage, Craftsmanship and Local Identity
Co-edited by gestalten & BESIDE
From Kenya to Korea, from Iceland to Canada, traditions surround us. They are carried in the passed-down stories, rituals, and skills that keep us afloat: things like cooking, sewing, farming, beekeeping, building, blacksmithing, and shepherding. Today, a new generation of people seeking out creative ways to revive and adapt traditions to make them more sustainable. As a way of inspiration, this book tells the stories of these individuals and communities taking part in a movement for a “new traditional”.
