MBQ Holiday Pop-Up in Vienna
8. Dezember 2017 14:00 bis 23. Dezember 2017 16:00
This holiday season, MBQ invites all Viennese crafts and design enthusiasts to a spontaneous shopping experience. Wood, copper, leather, textiles, brass and natural fibres. All of them, beautifully handcrafted into unique pieces by our talented Roma artisans. The perfect gifts for the loved ones, or yourself.
About the concept:
We know little of Roma craftsmen and their ancient skills. This cultural heritage can both contribute to changing attitudes towards the Roma and provide an opportunity to help families escape the grinding poverty in which so many of them live.
With the support of the ERSTE Foundation Roma Partnership, MBQ [Meşteshukar ButiQ] has revisited many of these traditional crafts and developed an updated collection in collaboration with Viennese designers Nadja Zerunian and Peter Weisz. This has been an ongoing journey of almost 3 years, and we are proud to present a collection of handmade products, their makers and their stories.
MBQ [Mesteshukar ButiQ] is a Bucharest based social enterprise working on revaluing traditional Roma craftsmanship.
