The German UNESCO Commission has endorsed ABURY!
In the past 3 years ABURY was able to connect local artisans from Morocco and Ecuador with international designers from Brazil, France and Spain. These collaborations have been very fruitful not only in developing beautiful and unique collection but specially because revived the passion and trust of the artisans and locals for their own culture and traditions! What once was at stake is now an activity fairly paid and recognized from proud customers from all over the world!
It is with great pleasure that we announce that ABURY has received the endorsement of the German UNESCO Commission that states that ABURY is an innovative model to preserve immaterial cultural world heritage. This journey has just begun as we see no limits for the positive change that together with our customers = friends = supporters we can make around the world! Thanks for being part of this great family!
Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage / UNESCO.
“There are things that we regard as important to preserve for future generations.They may be significant due to their present or possible economic value, but also because they create a certain emotion within us, or because they make us feel as though we belong to something — a country, a tradition, a way of life.
They might be objects that can be held and buildings that can be explored, or songs that can be sung and stories that can be told. Whatever shape they take, these things form part of a heritage, and this heritage requires active effort on our part in order to safeguard it.
Cultural heritage does not end at monuments and collections of objects. It also includes traditions or living expressions inherited from our ancestors and passed on to our descendants, such as oral traditions, performing arts, social practices, rituals, festive events, knowledge and practices concerning nature and the universe or the knowledge and skills to produce traditional crafts.”
