American Craft: ‘Designed for Life’

The American Craft Council will present its annual San Francisco wholesale show Aug. 4-5 at Fort Mason Center.

The show will include jewelry, contemporary fashion collections, furniture, home décor accessories, wall art as well as sculptural and functional works of glass, ceramic, metal, wood, leather, and decorative fiber.
