The Quiet Revolution - where small choices can lead to big changes.
"Conscious consumers are turning the made-in-China economy to a DIY state of mind."
Food that magically regrows itself - how ingenious!
" What’s the last thing you built when you got that high? You know that high I’m talking about? It’s staring at a thing that you brought into the world because you decided it needed to exist."
Haystakt : “Does this necessarily correlate to being made by hand?”
I think it’s regressive to insist that everything should be made entirely by hand by one individual. We can’t turn back the clock and ignore the presence of machines and tools and multiple suppliers. So for us, the concept of craftsmanship is about 3 qualities:
- a dedication to understanding, working with, and transforming the material you have chosen to use
- the connections between a pair of skilled hands, a sharp mind, and a warm heart, i.e. good ol’ passion
- a process and outcome from which you can tell the maker’s personality and attitude to life.
