Malta - Craft Village at Ta’ Qali
At first sight Malta does not appear to have much in the way of unique crafts and locally produced giftware. However, there is actually a thriving industry in gift shops and giftware and much of it is produced locally.
Some of the glassware is unique and of Maltese design and at the Craft Village at Ta’Qali a company called Heritage Homes Ltd produce some very intricate hand-made and hand-painted miniature buildings.
The craft village is situated on an old British military airfield and the Second World War Nissen huts have been converted into shops and workshops. The Malta Aviation Museum is situated here.
