Handicrafts have emerged in the beginning to meet the daily needs and motivation of people to exist and protect against nature. However, especially with the transition to the settled life handicrafts have gained another function for the need of adornment and decoration. Parallel to the development of handicrafts, they also started to have a communicative function. Motifs, embroideries, and colors used in handicrafts have become symbols that express emotions. Before the invention of writing, people describe nature events, forms of belief, feelings, and thoughts by symbolizing and painting them.
Nowadays, because the developing technology and mass production took place the traditional production techniques, handicrafts have begun to produce decorative objects that emphasize visual aesthetics in the name of our continuing relationship with the past and nature rather than with necessity and functionality. Handicrafts are transitioning from craft to art. Handcrafted products are evolving from everyday tools to artworks.
