In the early 1900's in Japan, the Folk Craft movement was founded by several representatives of interesting professions. A few of them - potters, one textile dyer, another woodblock print artist. They propagated the spiritual and humanitarian importance of hand crafts during a time when the Industrial Revolution was changing the traditional way of life in Japan.
