The chapter aims to deepen the existing relationship between the Italian fashion system and artistic craft productions. Starting from a socio-historical research including interviews to artistic craft professionals working within the fashion system, it shows that in the global economic systems, artistic crafts play a role as resources for economic development and enhancement of local heritage. In the context of global transformations, artistic craft activities - which are not “de-localizable” or which can be delocalized only delegitimizing their value - tend to assume an increasingly important specific weight in the production, including industrial production, of that Italian excellence which is often associated with Made in Italy.
