We always support craftsmanship, handmade product.
A handmade object is not only unique and unrepeatable. A handmade object embraces the love and passion with which it has been realized, dedication and care for detail, from design to creation. That's why the craftsman puts his name and face on what he does.
When you give a handmade item, you give a clear message: you are telling the person who deserves something unique and special. You're giving a bit of attention and mastery that, that object absorbed, while it was being created.
Purchasing a handmade item not only gives the opportunity to know the person who realized it, where and how it was done but it is also a way to directly support craftsmanship and creativity to reward talent, passion and care in what is done.
This is a different way of shopping. The "conscious shopping" can change trading rules and the standards of globalization.
And not only.
When buying directly from those who produce, there are no intermediate steps, so the price does not swell: what you pay is the actual value of the object, done by the one who knows what's behind to accomplish it. Crafted objects are often the result of manual activities that are disappearing and buying a handmade object is the only way to keep manual techniques, often ancient, that few know do.
By purchasing a handmade item, prove that not everything in this world is made in series and that it may be nice also what does not respond to conventional parameters.
Each artifact also enters a story that is the result of many factors: what inspired the craftsman, what material he chose to use, the difficulties encountered in creating it, the joy he has tried to create and realize it.
An aura that increases the value of the object, which makes it unique.
In short, buy and give a handmade item becomes a "enjoyable experience" for those who make it, for those who buy it, for those who receive it.
