More than ever now you are all aware of the importance of supporting your local economy. There is a growing desire among consumers to buy Irish and support local enterprises. According to new research commissioned by the Crafts Council of Ireland. by Millward Brown Lansdowne, awareness and appreciation of Irish craft is at an all-time high following Year of Craft 2011, with 62% of Irish consumers purchasing a craft item in 2011, compared to just 50% in 2010.
The survey of a nationally representative sample of 800 participants also shows that over half of the population, (51%), are interested in buying and owning craft product, an increase from 39% in 2010. 83% of people now see Irish craft as an ideal gift.
