Handmade crafts Italy
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Handmade crafts

Wicker baskets, items made with cork, napkins, tablecloths and place mats, the Sardinian arts and crafts trade is well worth discovering during your stay. All the crafts here are made using traditional methods, and make for perfect souvineers.

What characterises Sardinia the most, though, and which you will find everywhere - in the streets, the shops, the hotels and the houses - are wall paintings. Stencilled or done by hand, Sardinian wall paintings vary considerably, from traditional art work to innovative new designs.
